Hello & welcome to SevenForums!

.vb (vbscript) are Visual Basic 6 & VB.Net and earlier versions..might need one of those, C++ & SDK to be installed and i think windows 7 block such script from being executed otherwise.

Hope this help:

I forgot to mention that I have VB.net VS 2010 Express installed. My system is 64bit home premium

I would like to use the preview to see old code while working on new code.

Could the VS be interfering with the text preview somehow?

Might this post may help you?:

Could you register the.vb (vbscript.dll) again to have it work?

this is no big drama, just annoying, in W7 when you highlight a text file with .txt extension you will see what is inside the file in the preview panel if you are using the Windows Explorer.

if you run this script:

=======textext.reg======
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.nfo]
"Content Type"="text/plain"
"PerceivedType"="text"

========================

you will see what is inside .nfo files

you can run this script many times for
different extension on files with text

BUT for .vb, it does not work. (the .vb's are text)

I would like to know if there is a work-around
