Hi, I downloaded Microsoft's Winodws 7 and installed the 64bit version. All the Canon utilities work fine, except for the RAW Codec - No 64bit support. It is possible to download a 64bit codec from a third party, but I noticed that some RAW files do have Thumbnails. Here is the scenario:

1. Codec 1.5 installed
2. Microsoft Pro Photo Tools installed http://www.microsoft.c​om/prophoto/default.as​pxexternal link

It seems that if you browse the folder in Pro Photo 2, the thumbnails are generated. Once that is done, the folder view in Explorer always shows the Large thumbnails.

This should work for any x86 type app that opens the folder to see the content. It loads the Codec and generates the images. Only the 64bit Explorer will not trigger the Thumbnail generation.

It is a pity that Canon doesn't have a 64bit codec.

I'm running Win 7 x64, and just installing the Canon RAW codec 1.5 fixed my thumbnail issue (in regular old Explorer.exe).

This is what I did as well, can always remove and install it again. The thumbnails do not show automatically.

That is because you use a camera supported by the codec.

The 40D is not supported by the codec.

Hmmmm, maybe not. According to this the 40D is supported by Canon's RAW codec, but te support is only for x86, not x64.

So Johnny, how are you able to view RAW files on Win7 x64?

Here are some ideas on getting it to work with 64 bit.

Can be used with 64 bit Vista Date: February 17, 2009
Pros: easy to use, Simple controls/menu, Nice features/settings, excellent image quality

This can be used with 64 bit Vista by navigating to C:\Program Files (x86) and launching the 32 bit version of Photo Gallery which is included in Vista 64 bit operating system.

Not sure. I went to download the Codec off of the 5D page, and it warned me that it wasn't supported on x64 systems. That didn't seem to stop it from working, though.

I've had to get Windows Live Photo Viewer on my XP boxes for it to work.

I don't think we have one yet, but I thought it was time for a Win7 Sticky thread,.

So I moved this to Computers and stuck it..
Any objection to us collecting more Win7 tips and info here> (like or Vista compatibility thread? )

I can do all I want with RAW files after installing DPP. The only thing not working so well is the ability to see the thumbnails in Explorer. After a lot of reading, the Canon RAW Codec is x86 and not x64.

I will add "Windows Live Photo Viewer" and see if it uses the Canon RAW Codec and builds the "Thumbnails".

Just added "Windows Live Photo Galary" and now all the Explorer thumbnails are generated. Extra Large Icons, Large Icons and so on. The Galary it seems uses the Canon RAW Codec (v.1.5 installed)

Problem Solved :-)
