Windows 8 Pro RTM & Nikon D800 RAW Thumbnails

Postby DaveEdotMe on Fri Aug 17, 2012 7:00 pm

Just a heads up -

I just upgraded to Windows 8 Pro RTM and re-installed the Codecs v3.3 and thumbnails of my Nikon D800 Raw files are no longer appearing in Windows Explorer. My Nikon D7000 thumbnails do appear however.

Keep up the great work!

D800 is supported, and Windows 8 Desktop too. What is not supported (for any non-Microsoft WIC codec anyway) is WinRT/Metro-style/Windows 8-style applications. Not because of a limitation of the FPV codecs, but Microsoft apparently blocked all 3rd-party codecs in WinRT, at least in the first release.

You should try uninstalling and reinstalling, perhaps there is something wrong with the setup on this machine, and D7000 files appear to work because their thumbnails were still cached in the system's thumbnail database?

Thank You for the fast response Axel. Re-installing the codecs did the trick.
