Im getting this error message quite a bit now. It happens usually when I select a DWF file from Explorer. It locks up explorer and closes the window. Im running Windows XP pro? Anyone else get this error message every once and a while? This has happened on about 5 computers in the office. Thanks for any help!! I also have the latest Windows explorer 6.0 Thanks Mark

Take a look at the thread "DWF folder corrupt" in the autodesk.express.viewer newsgroup. This is a known issue. The temporary workaround follows: We've found a defect logged against this issue. It's a problem with the DWF thumbnail module included with AutoCAD 2004, 2005, and DWG Viewer. It's already been fixed in the code stream, but won't be available as a fix until the next release or service pack ( I have no information as to when that may be). As a workaround, you can prevent the crash in Windows Explorer by deleting the registry key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dwf\ShellEx Note: this will mean there will be no thumbnails displayed in the explorer.

John,

I have a clarification question. After implementing this work around, does this mean that there are no more thumbnails visible in Explorer at all? Or does it mean that there are no more thumbnails of DWF files?

Thanks.
