How do I get Windows 7 x64 to show dwf files in the preview pane

How can we get DWF files that are published to be viewable in the 64-bit thumbnails and Windows File Explorer preview pane?

 

Please advise.

I don´t understand ...   sorry by my English...

 

I have a Design review  and ACAD 2013,  and use Design review only to see the dwf files ...

 

It´s was installed in XP Windows, and i didn´t this problem...

 

Now i install Windows 7 64bits , and now i have the follow problem: 

 

The ACAD is OK, but the design review , look like don´t support Thumbs in the Windows Explorer,  I can´t see the thumbs, only icones...

 

I don´t believe that,  Autodesk does that ,  

 

I use very much this , to look for draws in the files ...

 

What to do now ?   The Autodesk don´t have a fix or another version compatible W7 64 ????

How it is possible that noone is developing Design Review but it is still requred to view DWF file? Does any other program replaced DR? I know about Navis Freedom but its like 700MB, DR have 47MB (installation files).

I want to share my projects with large number of customers. Right now I am able to open dwf in IE9 but I don't know if everyone can or it's just me with my programs installed (Product Design Suite 2015)?

or maybe someone knows how to make outlook display files in reading pane?

PDF is where the rest of the planet moved to, that's why DWF stalled at Autodesk.

Don't get stuck being the last person on that bus... .

I don't care if I'm the last in the bus as long the driver is with me. But
if the bus is not moving...
Pdf is very limited. I mean Inventor (all Autodesk products?) does not
support 3D pdf. I need tool to share my 3D models and give my customers
possibility to measure geometry. Do you know any alternative?

3D PDF development was picked up by Tetra 4D.  They sell plug-ins for a number of products.  As far as I know, thats all thats currently available for creating 3D PDFs from AutoCAD products, although I think there's an IdeaStation entry for native 3D PDF creation.

 

Edit: I'd also take another look at Navisworks, especially with the AutoDesk 360 collaboration products.  Yes, its a big install but almost all of our clients make use of it now.  We frequently deliver a single model published in NWD format in lieu of stacks of detailed drawings.
