Windows 7: No thumbnails for Fujifilm RAF files generated in Explorer -Win7 64bit

No thumbnails for Fujifilm RAF files generated in Explorer -Win7 64bit

When I click open a folder, with "Large" or "Extra Large" icons selected as the viewing mode, thumbnails are generated for any JPEG files, but not for the RAF (Fuji RAW) files. For those, there is only the icon for the default program I have set. But, I have two IDENTICAL PCs, both with everything the same. I update Windows7 on both at the same time, and install the same software, etc. The strange thing is that ONE of my computers DOES display thumbnails for BOTH jpeg and RAF files! But the other system only displays thumbnails for the jpegs. I have no idea why the difference. I've checked settings for all the folder and viewing options I can think of, in control panel as well, but no solution. Any ideas are welcome.

Do you have Microsoft Camera Codec Pack installed?

I did install it on the 'problem' computer, however, the working computer has always shown the RAF thumbnails, and I never installed any codec on that one. But anyway, even after I installed the codec, it doesn't work.

Do you have the latest finepix software installed, using the latest codecs?

I installed the Fuji software that came with the camera (X-S1) on both computers. I checked for updates, downloaded and installed them on both computers. This was done on Monday to make sure.

Other than 3rd party software, I'm out of ideas at the moment.

So am I.....
I looked at the registry entries on both systems. and just to see what happened, I changed the file type association to a different program, and then looked at the registry again, and I noticed that the registry didn't change. So then I re-associated the file type back to what it was, but the registry still showed the same software association in H_KEY classes. I thought it might change, but I don't know much about registry stuff.

Do note that messing about in the registry is never a good idea unless you know exactly what you changing.
If you feel the need to experiment with registry keys in spite of the chance you could render your OS
unusable or un-bootable making a backup before every change is a good habit to adopt.

With that said most registry changes will not take affect until a system reboot has take place.

I didn't reboot. But I didn't change anything! I'm not confident enough to do that. I merely looked at the registry. But I did do a reboot yesterday AFTER I changed the default program for .RAF files, and it still didn't work (I didn't look at the registry then, just the folders with the RAF files.)
