W7 64bit thumbnails, is there a fix yet?

Hi all.
I know there have been several threads already made with many and varied ideas to try and fix this but none have worked yet and i wondered if there was a MS fix out yet?

I have tried a lot of things to try and fix this issue but nothing has worked yet.
Unticked show only icons not thumbs in folder view.
Tried two different reg edits.
Enabled thumbs for logged in user and all users.
Tried the file association fix.
Tried the default program fix.
Tried vlc player and div-x.
Tried klite and another codec pack.
Changed power options.
Been through system properties and performance changes.

Oddly .mov thumbs show ok but they are the only ones that show.

I would expect MS to know there is an issue, but have they acknowledged it and worked out the problem yet, would be nice to know.

Thnx in advance, Richie.

Hello Richie, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you give us more details about your issue along with a screenshot?

In the mean time, you might see if resetting the thumbnail cache may help.

OK hopefully attached a screenie of what i see in every folder that has any movies in it.
I did try and reset the cache but to no avail.

These movies are .MOD files from my cam but all bar .MOV are the same icons

ok an update ...

Installed shark007 as described in the instructions, got most of my thumbs back now but missing .wmv and also .mp4 thumbs, for some reason they still only show the icon.

and just to mention in case I didn't that I previously tried safe mode 'minimal' and had no thumbs there either.

But this is a good start to getting everything working again! thnx guys

Richie,

In Default Programs, double check to make sure that Windows Media Player is set with all of it's default associations.

some video player has most likely removed the original registry keys for those formats. The registry file I have attached will replace the NATIVE keys missing from your registry. You will need to reboot to see the effects.

I do not know if it will help for wmv files but for mp4,
access [Icaros Thumbnailing] on the 64bit Config TAB installed by the codecs
click Deactivate, add mp4 to the optional filetypes list (maintain the formatting)
and you could also try adding wmv, then click, Activate.
