Vista Slide Show -- No such interface supported RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I click to view the photo in the Slide Show gadget that ships with Vista, I see a dialog box that has the path to the .jpg and below that "No such interface supported."

    I get the same message when I open Windows Photo Gallery, right-click on a .jpg, and select Open With... Photo Gallery Viewer. (After clicking "OK" here I see a second dialog with "System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'shimgvw' or one of its dependencies.")

    I can, however, double-click a .jpg in Windows Explorer, and it opens the file and displays the photo in Windows Photo Gallery, apparently using the Photo Gallery Viewer.

    When I first installed Vista, I was about to view photos using the Slide Show gadget. I'd like to be able to do that again.

  • Are you talking about the Windows SideBar Slideshow gadget?

    This forum is for Windows SideShow (Auxillary displays) discussion.
