windows 7/8,1/10
 
 

works great (win 7/8/10) got it to open and animate gif files. and i got it to open other picture files to. it is a lot faster and better then the default (and a lot of other picture viewers)
if anyone want instructions VVVV

set C:\Windows\gif\rundll32 compatibility to vista

open regedit and go to

HKEY_currrent_user\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\\Software\Microsoft\W indows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\

and in the picture file extension folder
file extension\OpenWithProgids

add a binary file (REG_BINARY) with the name

GIFImage.Document

(now you can associate that file typ with windows photo and fax viewer)

right click the picture and go to settings and change the open with to windows picture and fax viewer

done
