Preview Pane Problems: Non-Image Files are not Previewing

Hi. I've been having problems with the preview pane. A picture might help:



Any files other than pictures do not appear on the preview pane. It doesn't say "No Preview Available" either. No matter how long I wait either, it does not appear. As you can see, thumbnails are on too.

Hi Giant Shy Guy and welcome to Seven Forums. To view other files you need plug ins. You may need to install these amongst other plug-ins. Make sure you use 32bit for your system.
