Preview files psdata

Post by LucaB » Sun Sep 29, 2013 6:51 pm

Hello everyone and sorry for my bad English.
I changed the PC for my Pico and I can not preview the file saved psdata.
The PC now bears 7.

If it is a new operating system it is worth checking your view settings:

Check the "Always show icons, never thumbnails" option.

Hi - I'll speak with Technical Support and see if they have heard of this before.

Will get back to you,

Hi,

I spoke to our Tech Support team to see if they had any ideas. They came back with an internet link that appears to be the same problem that you have.

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/159 ... neric-icon

Similar to the previous suggestion, but it makes reference to the icon sizes.

Other than this, it is a Windows setting, and not a PicoScope one so I cannot think of what else to suggest? Perhaps another member of the forum has had similar issues and can assist.

Hi Luca

If Mike's suggestion doesn't work, try re-registering your thumbnail handler:

From and elevated command prompt (i.e. with administrator privileges) type the following commands:

For x64 (64bit) systems:

Code: Select all

regsvr32 "c:\Program Files (x86)\Pico Technology\PicoScope6
Automotive\Thumbs\x64\Thumbs.dll"
or for x86 (32bit) systems:

Code: Select all

regsvr32 "c:\Program Files\Pico Technology\PicoScope6
Automotive\Thumbs\x86\Thumbs.dll"
A MessageBox should pop-up indicating success. (If you get error 0x80070005, you aren't running as administrator!)

Hope this helps

Mark

Hi Mark

I do as you told me or is there another system.
Excuse the question, I'm afraid of making mistakes and put bad PC

Hi Luca

For 32bit systems, use the x86 section (I've updated the original post to make this clearer).

You don't need to worry about breaking your PC, the command I sent you is designed to do all of the complicated bits for you automatically.

I have been following this thread with interest because we had a couple of PCs here with this issue. These are now fixed with Mark's code.

However, copying and pasting the code as shown in this thread will result in an error unless you remove the line break after Pico Technology\PicoScope6 and add a space before pasting into the command prompt window.

I assume the forums split the code into the two lines when they should be one.
