If it doesn't exist then that's fine and you can skip this part. This second area will exist if Adobe Reader was installed on Windows Vista. That includes Vista machines which were later upgraded to Windows 7.

I think it's due to changes in the way bit registry redirection works in Windows 7. If you have both values you need to change both; if you only have one you only need to change that one. If you are using bit Office beta then the second area without the WowNode must exist for the preview handler to work.

Or just use the automated tool above as it will do this for you. This extra step is not required for the retail RTM version of Office ; only for the beta. Uninstalling preview handlers does not always put back the previous ones; instead, do a repair install or a re-install of the preview handler you wish to use so that it takes over the PDF preview handler registration.

You can also do this by editing the PDF file-type in the registry.

The tool above takes care of this and all the other issues so use that if you get stuck. The thumbnail bridge also trims the white border which Adobe Reader places around the thumbs it generates, making them look a lot better. As a result, even bit users may wish to install it.

If you find that your thumbnails still do not work after installing the thumbnail bridge, do a Repair install of Adobe Reader to ensure its thumbnail generator is correctly installed. The thumbnail bridge acts as a translator between the and bit worlds and does not actually generate the thumbnails itself; it still relies on Adobe Reader to do that.

This hopefully fixes yet another problem in Adobe's thumbnailer which caused PDF thumbnails for files in a folder to get jumbled up.

You should clear your thumbnail cache, too. Fixed problem of black thumbnails appearing. This was due to a bug in the Windows shell that I had to work around. See comment I added to IThumbnailProvider:: GetThumbnail for technical info.

Fixed an error which meant the small Thumbridge. It doesn't correctly respond to IPreviewHandler:: TranslateAccelerator in response. In particular, it swallows tab key presses when it has focus, breaking tab cycling in the host application.

Calls to IPreviewHandler:: SetFocus and IPreviewHandler:: QueryFocus always fail. When the PDF preview handler has the focus it draws an ugly dotted-line border around its toolbar at the bottom. It looks like it thinks it's in ActiveX design mode or something. Zoomed-in screenshot. Well done for releasing Adobe Reader X in a state where the preview handler's mousewheel and scrollbar do not work properly. Outstanding work, as always!

It's constant excitement, maintaining working Adobe PDF support and cleaning up Adobe's mess all the time, let me tell you!

Directory Opus uses my bundled plugin as a bridge for various third-party viewers, including Adobe Reader if it's installed. I made earlier versions use the full Adobe Reader by default. I had to write a tobit ActiveX proxy process to make the Adobe Reader and Flash viewers work within bit Opus.

Review: bit Adobe Preview Handler shows PDF thumbnails in Windows/File Explorer

A lot of effort due to Adobe being so lax at producing bit components. Adobe Reader was originally used instead of the preview handler because of various issues with the preview handler.

Then Windows 7 came out and Adobe Reader embedding was completely broken. That could be Microsoft's fault but my bet is it's Adobe's. So I worked around the preview handler issues, including the main one this page is about, and that is now the default in Opus. I wish I could bill Adobe for my time fixing their mess. The ridiculous thing is that whenever we've tried to officially inform Adobe of bugs in their code like blindly calling through a null pointer after a failed QueryInterface , bugs which we've found and worked around for ourselves but which may cause problems for other people, they've asked us to pay them for a support contract.

Who is supporting whom here, exactly? What is wrong with that company? Okay, they didn't write iTunes or Lotus Notes, but they're getting close Personally, I find Adobe's font rendering easier to read , despite my other complaints.

Writing of the thumbnail fix was funded by someone who wishes to remain anonymous but still deserves thanks, not least of which for allowing the fix to be given away for free to everyone else. The post and discussion about the original version of this fix at Ed Bott's Windows Expertise unearthed further useful information and caveats on different Windows installs. That information has been incorporated into the fix tool and this page.

Adobe didn't mention it in the change log, let alone credit me for finding it, but at least they finally fixed it. Maybe they'll fix the thumbnails next year?

But Windows 8 wiped all of that. The preview handler fix should no longer be required for Adobe Reader 9. Sir, I think you misunderstood my problem. With earlier versions of Adobe Reader, you may need to re-apply the fix if you update or re-install Adobe Reader. A lot of effort due to Adobe being so lax at producing bit components.
