    Unfortunately there is no official support for the Power Toy collection. Did you remove it prior to reinstalling? You might also consider a System Restore to a date when you know it was working properly.

    First time I have seen anyone specify the regsvr32 DLL names without the .dll suffix!

    But it works...

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by DaveA on 02-Feb-06 14:20. To clarify my statement)</P>The failure of the images to be made when using <font color=red> Image resizer</font color=red>, can be the result of not enough room on the device that the files are being saved to.

    NO message or error notice will be displayed.
    I see this a lot on the USB Thumb drives, when people do not realize that the device in almost full.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    You don't need the powertoy image resizer. Windows XP comes with the Microsoft Picture Manager and this contains exactly the same tool built in. Click on Picture|Resize.

    Microsoft Picture Manager is not part of Windows XP, as far as I know. It comes with Office 2003.

    Also, when using Microsoft Picture Manager the resizing is done to the current copy, and one may NOT want that copy resized. Not only that, I can select a full folder of images and they all be be resized in a matter of seconds when using PowerToy Image Resizer.
