Windows 7: To associate goofwear's Gif Viewer with all image types

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!
