Title: Fsh file Thumbnails for Windows XP, 7 and Vista
Post by: null45 on September 21, 2009, 04:49:38 PM
This is a plug-in that I wrote that allows Windows Explorer to display thumbnails of Fsh files.

I hope it is useful  :thumbsup:

I saw this in the replies box and thought it must be someone asking if it's possible. Null can't have done it again, opened the thread was wow !!

You are awesome!
This will be extremely useful.

Impressive!  This would have been so useful back when I was editting transit textures.  :thumbsup:

Strange...when I download it, I get a file that is 407 Kb. Nothing to be alarmed about, really, but when I extract it, I get a message saying that the .exe file is corrupted by a CRC error.

Any ideas?

The setup exe should be 436 KB,  the zip itself should be 408 KB

What zip program did you use to extract it?
I can't think of any reason that the exe would be corrupt it works fine for me.

I use a version of AlZip from before it became shareware. It works well, except in this case.

Alzip does not handle the zip files correctly.
7-Zip (http://www.7-zip.org) is a free alternative that handles zip and many other formats, or just use the unzip utility built into Windows.
