Are you facing the same like me? Having difficulties previewing RAW images using standard Windows Explorer application. You can say bye bye to this problem by installing this wonderful software, FastPictureViewer WIC RAW Codec Pack. It is a 32-bit and 64-bit RAW image decoder for Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.

The FastPictureViewer WIC RAW Codec Pack supports 21 raw image formats (*.dng, *.cr2, *.crw, *.erf, *.raf, *.3pr, *.fff, *.dcr, *.kdc, *.raw, *.rwl, *.mrw, *.nef, *.nrw, *.orf, *.rw2, *.pef, *.x3f, *.arw, *.sr2, and *.srf) from 14 camera manufacturers, covering more than 300 camera models and currently supports the TGA raster image format. You can easily turn your Windows Explorer into a RAW viewer now.

However, please donate if you consider this software is useful because it is release as donationware to support the development of it and it is not freeware. The latest version 1.64 adds support for Canon EOS 1D Mark IV, Canon PowerShot S90, Fuji FinePix S200EXR and Pentax K-x.
