SageThumbs & EXR

Hi
I use XnView and installed the OpenEXR plugin
Also I use a SageThumbs by Nikolay Raspopov
SageThumbs is a powerful shell extension allowing to preview enormous amount of image formats directly in Windows Explorer by using Pierre-e Gougelet's GFL library (XnView's author).

I want to see in Windows Explorer thumbnails of EXR files
But EXR is not included in the GFL library 3.40 which uses SageThumbs

How can I add EXR to the GFL library?

You need to copy openEXR.dll in plugins folder of XnViewShellEx

if on a hurry, you may want to give Mysticthumbs a try.
(from my experience: awesome utility with extensive file type compatibility & top notch support)

I have downloaded exr.zip from http://www.xnview.com/en/plugins.html
within the archive IlmImf.dll
I copied it to C:\Program Files(x86) \ XnView \ PlugIns

The program XnView displays thumbnails of EXR, but SageThumb does not see them.

openEXR.dll I could not find


Where is my mistake?

Sorry it's IlmImf.dll
And XnViewShellEx.dll is in "C:\Program Files(x86) \ XnView"??

Hello Pierre!
I spoke with Nikolay Raspopov.
EXR should be added to your GFL library.

Add it please !!!!!!!!!!
