    Let's compare registry.

    I have this:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll]
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell]
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open]"MuiVerb"="@photoviewer.dll,-3043"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\Command]@="%SystemRoot%\\System32\\rundll32.exe “%ProgramFiles%\\Windows Photo Viewer\\PhotoViewer.dll”, ImageView_Fullscreen %1"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\DropTarget]"Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}"
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\print]"NeverDefault"=""
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\print\command]@=hex:25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,00,25,00,\  5c,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,72,00,75,00,6e,\  00,64,00,6c,00,6c,00,33,00,32,00,2e,00,65,00,78,00,65,00,20,00,22,00,25,00,\  50,00,72,00,6f,00,67,00,72,00,61,00,6d,00,46,00,69,00,6c,00,65,00,73,00,25,\  00,5c,00,57,00,69,00,6e,00,64,00,6f,00,77,00,73,00,20,00,50,00,68,00,6f,00,\  74,00,6f,00,20,00,56,00,69,00,65,00,77,00,65,00,72,00,5c,00,50,00,68,00,6f,\  00,74,00,6f,00,56,00,69,00,65,00,77,00,65,00,72,00,2e,00,64,00,6c,00,6c,00,\  22,00,2c,00,20,00,49,00,6d,00,61,00,67,00,65,00,56,00,69,00,65,00,77,00,5f,\  00,46,00,75,00,6c,00,6c,00,73,00,63,00,72,00,65,00,65,00,6e,00,20,00,25,00,\  31,00,00
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\print\DropTarget]"Clsid"="{60fd46de-f830-4894-a628-6fa81bc0190d}"
    and this:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Photo Viewer]
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Photo Viewer\Capabilities]"ApplicationDescription"="@%ProgramFiles%\\Windows Photo Viewer\\photoviewer.dll,-3069""ApplicationName"="@%ProgramFiles%\\Windows Photo Viewer\\photoviewer.dll,-3009"
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Photo Viewer\Capabilities\FileAssociations]
    ".tif"="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Tiff"
    ".tiff"="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Tiff"
    ".bmp"="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Bitmap"
    ".dib"="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Bitmap"
    ".gif"="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Gif"
    ".jfif"="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.JFIF"
    ".jpe"="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Jpeg"
    ".jpeg"="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Jpeg"
    ".jpg"="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Jpeg"
    ".jxr"="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Wdp"]
    ".png"="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Png"
    ".wdp"="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Wdp"
    Is yours the same?

    Thanks for all the help, my registry entries seem fine as far as I call tell but the program still won't launch. If this was Linux, I would say the file wasn't executable but I don't know how that translates to Windows.

    Anyhow, I've giving up for now on phtoviewer and am using a program called irfanview, it's fairly streamed line and seem to work fairly well. I'm going to consider this matter closed...

    Thanks for all the help.

    possibly something along the lines of the dll need registering....

    As I said in post #3, that's a popular choice for many.

    But as mama said, I'm hard headed enough to wait until post 24 to do what you recommended in post 3. Which might explain my soft seat now...

    Irfanview does the job probably better than Windows Photo Viewer. Anyway there's no executable for Windows Photo Viewer.

    One last shot if you want to test:

    [Winkey+R]

    Then run this command:

    Code:
    rundll32 "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Photo Viewer\PhotoViewer.dll", ImageView_Fullscreen
    If that doesn't launch Windows Photo Viewer then maybe there's a problem with the .dll

    Nothing, it does absolutely nothing.

    I remember seeing the setting to remove it when I was using MSMG but I thought it meant the Win10 viewer since it was lumped with the other packages. And in my earnest desire to get rid of everything, I did just that. We'd probably have to read the script to know what all that entailed but as you can see, as far as those store apps go, I am down to nothing, and aside from this one slip up I am very happy.


    Code:
    PS C:\Windows\system32> Get-AppxPackage | Select Name, PackageFullName
    
    Name                                  PackageFullName
    ----                                  ---------------
    Microsoft.Windows.CloudExperienceHost Microsoft.Windows.CloudExperienceHost_10.0.17763.1_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy
    Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost_10.0.17763.1_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy
    windows.immersivecontrolpanel         windows.immersivecontrolpanel_10.0.2.1000_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy
    InputApp                              InputApp_1000.17763.1.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy

    But my hindsight led me to a pretty good app so I'm happy now...

    Thanks again for all the help.
