Just installed the Microsoft RAW viewer. Seemed to install okey and there is a folder in the program folder under 'pro imaging powertoys' yet whenever I open explorer I still can't view RAW files from either my 350D of 30D.

I do have .net 1.1 installed and all the latest sp2 updates.

Anyone come across this issue?

Mark... .net framework v2 is the latest. It may be that this is the issue..???

I have the same viewer and it works fine with my D200 files.

.Net V3 has been out some time and is the latest, and tends to get installed if you let it by MS updates. The MS Raw viewer was designed when .Net 1.1 was about.

Once V2 or V3 is installed on XP the viewer seems to error constantly because Microsoft haven't updated the .Net objects to the latest version. They probably will do to work with Vista.

I have 350D and 30D files and none work anymore with the viewer.

Interesting Chris! Last version I installed was v2. Need to check whether Mr Gates has been 'playing'.


Mark. I'm confused... In your opener you said -

Quote:I do have .net 1.1 installed

Then you say -

Quote:I have .net v2

Sorry Mike,
I did have version 1.1, then after reading the other posts I installed version 2. And still no joy.
