To associate goofwear's Gif Viewer with all image types
As you may know, Goofware's "Windows 7 GIF Image Viewer" is basically a clone of the WIndows XP picture and fax viewer modified to work on Windows 7.
These are the specific setup steps I took to get the GIF image viewer working:
- Download the Windows 7 Gif Viewer.exe installer from Index of ./downloads/
- Install, and ignore the dialogue window that might pop up saying "this program didn't install properly"
- Right click on C:\rundll32.exe and change the compatibility mode to Windows Vista, and also check the box "run as administrator"
- Run register_file_types.reg
This registry script should associate bmp, jpg, png, and tiff files with the viewer. It worked on my Windows 7 x64 system. Make sure to run it with admin priveledges. You might have to "take ownership" of these registry keys:
Hope this helps!
