ams4127 Thanks I have D/L and installed it, better late than never I suppose from MS

I haven't used it yet myself but there are reports saying that it may be slow in use.

I'll try it over the next few days when I can find some time.

Let me know how you get on with it.

A bit late for me, I purchased the Fast Picture Viewer codec pack a while back.

I don't think Miscrosoft can be blamed for this, it's really up to the camera makers to come up with the codecs, which Nikon for one now refuse to do.

It also only supports two of my cameras, both Nikon. My Olympus and Fuji models are not listed.

Raw came with my camera CD, I think it was the Fuji but I also have a ADSL Sony Alpha and it may have come with that, but think it was with Fuji
