Hello all, i know maybe this announcement out of date or you all guys have already known about it, or even someone has already posted it before me, but i still want to post it myself.
To all Directory Opus 9 Xp users (include me too), you can also definitely use Vista preview handlers in Windows Xp (it works for both Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 preview pane and also Directory Opus 18.104.22.168 -22.214.171.124 or above with its own viewer pane/preview plug in). just install the Azar's preview server and handler for Windows Xp to get it, you can visit:
(it based on MSDN Preview Handler), it's 100% free without any registration or payment. (the installer contains preview server that acts similar like vista prevhost.exe but in xp and some ported vista only preview handlers for xp such pdf, zip, wma, swf, many more etc. He (Azar) said the main purpose is only for MS Outlook 2007 preview pane in xp (please read the full article there), but in fact it can be applied as preview handler plug in for Directory Opus 126.96.36.199 not only vista but Xp!! (see my screen/attachment).
i have proven it my self (my system is Xp MCE 2005 Sp3 with Directory Opus 188.8.131.52 installed) and it really works. very stable and safe.
If you want to take advantage of PSD file preview by preview handlers for both Vista explorer preview pane and Directory Opus 9 viewer pane in both xp and vista, then You can download PSD preview handler at:
(attention: it's free but unfortunately requires short registration to download):
(it seems only works on xp if you have installed azar's preview handler server as prerequisite first. it also needs .net 2.0 framework or gacutil.exe if i'm not wrong ),
in addition, if you have installed office 2007 with built in preview handlers, they will also show on your directory opus (both xp and vista).
if then you decide to install, please read their article/guide carefully. pardon my very very bad english, hopefully little useful, thanks for your attention, regards
