Hi Folks,

I'm trying to be able to send a JPG to Windows Picture and Fax Viewer
by using Send To. I know that it can be done more directly, but I
won't waste the space trying to explain why I want to do it this way.

I've created a shortcut in the Send To folder. The Target of the
shortcut is . . .

%SystemRoot%\system32\rundll32.exe
%SystemRoot%\System32\shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen

When I double click on the shortcut itself, it starts the Viewer, so
the shortcut is working. When I try to send a JPG to it using Send To,
it doesn't work. Does anybody know how I might get this to work? Any
advice would be much appreciated.

Ken

The shortcut will need to use DDE more than likely insert
a "%1" statement after the shimgview.dll and before the
ImageView_Fullscreen. The line may look like:
%SystemRoot%\system32\rundll32.exe
%SystemRoot%\system32\shimgvw.dll "%1", ImageView_Fullscreen
and your file you send would be inserted in place of the dde

Thanks for the suggestion, but that doesn't seem to work. It doesn't
even work if I use the pathname to a particular JPG, ie
"C:\Marina.jpg", either with quotes or without quotes.

Ken,

I think there is a workaround for this. But, why're you so particular about
adding WPFV to the Send To?

Ramesh,

My wife has a Win2000 system at work. It has a shimgvw.dll file, but
her file doesn't seem to contain WPFV. WPFV doesn't appear in Open
With and her shimgvw.dll file properties don't indicate it.

She really likes WPFV as a way of viewing pictures (only during lunch
hour, of course), so I'm trying to find a way of adding it to her
system. At first, I considered just replacing her shimgvw.dll file
with my WinXP shimgvw.dll file, but I decided that I don't want to
take the chance of screwing up her office system, and it might not
show up in her Open With dialog anyway. That's when I started moving
in the direction of trying to add it to her Send To folder. I could
place my WinXP file in a separate location on her system and use that
file path in the shortcut.

Do you know if just replacing her shimgvw.dll would safely work?
What would your workaround be?

Thanks,

Ken

Yes, it does, but the properties page doesn't say Windows Picture and
Fax Viewer, it says something else. She told me what, but I don't
remember. Assuming that we don't want to mess with her system files,
what would your workaround be? Thanks.

Ken,

My workaround is to place a shortcut to my VBScript in the SendTo folder.
This script then invokes the shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen and passes the
argument (the name of the file that's being sent to). This script works fine
(and launches WPFV) in my Windows XP system, not sure about Windows 2000.
===========================================================
'Ramesh Srinivasan
'Adds Windows Picture Viewer to SendTo
Set wshshell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
ViewerPath = "rundll32.exe " & _
WshShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%systemroot%")
ViewerPath = ViewerPath & _
"\system32\shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen "

Dim Validator
Validator = "Validate"
Set objArgs = WScript.Arguments
For I = 0 to objArgs.Count - 1
InspExt = lcase(right(objArgs(I),4))

Select Case InspExt
Case ".bmp"
Case ".jpg"
Case ".gif"
Case "jpeg"
Case ".tif"
Case "tiff"
Case ".png"
Case ".wmf"
Case else Validator = "NoValidate"
end select

if Validator = "Validate" then
ViewImg = ViewerPath & objArgs(I)
WshShell.Run ViewImg, 1,True
else
msgbox "Unsupported file type for WPFV"
end if
Next
======================================

Copy the above contents to a Notepad, and save as "wpfv.vbs". Save this to
your Windows folder, and place a shortcut of this file in the Send To
folder. If the DLL is supported (i've not tested it in Win2000), then it
should display the picture.

Ramesh,

I like that! I was thinking along the script line myself, but I don't
know anything about scripts except that they're something like the DOS
batch files that I used to write. If we reached a dead end here, my
next posting was going to be regarding that. Now I just have to see
how I can get it to work in Win2000. Thanks for your help.

Ken,

Though shimgvw.dll might be present in your Windows 2000 system, I'm unsure
if the entrypoint "ImageView_Fullscr­een" will be available. If that's the
case, the script/and the Preview won't work. BTW, what's the Version info of
the shimgvw.dll in your W2k system? If you're wanting to use the XP's
version, you may try placing it in C:\TestFolder, and change the paths in
the script accordingly. Again, the above info is untested by me yet.

Ramesh,

Testing these ideas has been a slow process because the Win2K system
is my wife's system at work and I don't have access to it, so I have
to try to communicate the step by step instructions to her.

Re: Though shimgvw.dll might be present in your Windows 2000 system,
I'm unsure if the entrypoint "ImageView_Fullscreen" will be available.

You're right. When we tried to run:

%SystemRoot%\system32\rundll32.exe %SystemRoot%\system32\shimgvw.dll,
ImageView_Fullscreen

. . . on the Win2K system, it returned:

"Error in C:\WINNT\sys32\shimgvw.dll missing entry: Image
View_fullscreen"

Re: If you're wanting to use the XP's version

I tested that by creating a CD with the following WinXP files:
1) rundll32.exe
2) shimgvw.dll
3) a shortcut with the following target:
D:\rundll32.exe D:\shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen

When I clicked on the shortcut in my XP system, the viewer ran. There
was no picture in it, of course, but it did open. When my wife tried
the same thing on her 2K system, in returned:

"Entry point not found. The procedure entry point activateactcty
could not be found located in the dynamic link library kernel32.dll."

I'm not sure if she copied "activateactcty" correctly, but apparantly
the WinXP files won't run on the Win2K system.

Thanks again for your help.

Ken

I'm using XP SP2 at work. I have read a large number of the posts
containing shimgvw.dll, all of which are saying that 2K doesn't have
the ImageView_Fullscreen entrypoint.

I appear to be the only one who is getting the error "Error in
C:\WINNT\sys32\shimgvw.dll missing entry: ImageView_fullscreen" in XP.
The Photo Printing Wizard works as normal, and there is no association
for the Image Viewing Wizard as I have Office 2K3 which includes an
Image Viewer, the error message only comes up when I run

rundll32.exe shimgvw.dll,ImageView_FullScreen

from the command line. It doesn't make any difference whether I pass it
a picture or not (using a filename at the end, with or without "").

Any Ideas?

TIA

Dave

PS the command I'm actually trying to use is:

rundll32.exe shimgvw.dll,ImageView_PrintTo /pt "%1" "%2"

(%1 = filename, %2 = printername)

That doesn't work either and doesn't return an error, whether I specify
%1, %2, neither, or both.

It's ImageView_Fullscreen
not
ImageView_fullscreen

The parameter is case-sensitive.
