#8672 closed Bug report (outdated)

When trying to view a gif file it opens up in Internet Explorer instead of Windows Picture and fax viewer

Description

When trying to view a gif file on the server (right hand pane) the file is downloaded and is opened in Internet Explorer not in Windows Picture and Fax viewer like jpg files are. When trying to edit the file type association settings Filezilla does not allow for the correct file location syntax to be typed in.

I am using Filezilla version 3.6.0.2

What do you mean by "Filezilla does not allow for the correct file location syntax to be typed in"?

Windows Picture and Fax viewer does not have its own application so you can't point Filezilla to an .exe file for it. To get gif images to be viewed with the Windows Picture and Fax viewer one has to use this syntax:

rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen path-to-picture

but when you type this in to the filetype association window in Filezilla and click OK a small window pops up which says:

Associated program not found: rundll.exe

If changing the syntax to read:

C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe C:
WINDOWS\System32\shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen path-to-picture

nothing happens yet no error message comes up.

Windows XP is no longer supported.

I'm not a Windows user to be able to identify if this is still something that might be problematic.

Huge number of changes since ticket was created, please reopen ticket if issue still in latest version of FileZilla.

Thank you.
