    Windows Picture and Fax Viwer (XP)

    Trying to determine where the .exe for this program lives... for the life of me I can't find it.
    Reason: need to associate a file with another product, but it doesn't give me the option of just choosing the program from the drop box. argh!

    If I select Open With from the right-click menu for a file, then click Select Application..., Windows Picture and Fax Viewer is in the list.

    Windows Picture and Fax viewe is not a single .exe. The instruction used to open it uses RunDLL.exe, but with a special DLL as argument. You can find out as follows:
    - Open Windows Explorer.
    - Select Tools | Folder Options...
    - Activate the File Types tab.
    - Type the extension of a graphics file type, for example BMP.
    - Click Advanced...
    - Select Open and click Edit...
    - On my system, the application box contains

    <code>rundll32.exe C:WINDOWSSystem32shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen % 1</code>

    without a space between % and 1 (the browser messes up the display if I remove the space)
