Thank you all for your feedback. I spent this weekend tuckling thumbnail/preview issues and made no major progress.

kranu, a good suggestion. One problem, however, is that the "Installation Successful" would appear in some fixed languages. At the moment, the 2 seconds progress window (BTW you should have a ver fast PC; it stays approx. 5-6 seconds on mine) shows messages in whatever language that your Windows is in, because those messages are actually from Windows itself. Any customized message needs to be supplied by me.

I can write English and Japanese message, and it will be a good start?

Yes, that's a good start. If you want to, you can include a green checkmark, which I think is universal for "success".

Thumbs up New release 1.1.1166 is available

Hi, all

After almost three weeks blank, I released a new version of my MobiHandler program. It is numbered as 1.1.1166. As before, it is on SkyDrive at the same page: http://cid-88858bc052aea782.office.l...ic/MobiHandler

This release is a collection of bug fixes; mostly of the installer issues. Changes to the MobiHandler program itself are minor. The most significant change in this release might be a message box shown at the end of installation process, as suggested by kranu. (Thank you for the good suggestion.)

As always, I love to hear from you. Have fun, and keep feedbacks coming!

Alissa

I would love to be able to use this program! I do have some questions though:

With this program, can I go to My Kindle Content and see thumbnails of the books? Or do I use it with my Kindle tethered to the computer?

If the answer to the first is yes, is the program automatic? In other words, after I install it I just go to MKC folder and I will see the thumbnails? Or do I have to do something else to see them?

I apologize for the simplistic questions! =}

Installed new version and no more Trojan warnings!

Installs perfectly. Now works on Vista 64 all AZW files show thumbnails and mobi tab as intended. Would love to see it work on plain mobi files I have in my Mobipocker reader folder. Right now for mobi books with the extension mobi only the custom columns work in both 32 or 64.

It works in Windows Explorer. You can view thumbnails and it will show the covers or in the properties box it has a new tab called Mobi and it will show the metadata of that file. You can always add Authors and Title columns and it will display that info in Windows Explorer.

You can see cover images of you ebooks stored in your "My Kindle Content" folder as well as those in a Kindle Device connected with a USB cable.

As blossom wrote, MobiHandler is not an independent application program but a Shell Extension that is something like a plug-in to the Windows itself. I guess that's the point you were confused.

After installing the MobiHandler, just open your "My Kindle Content" folder with Explorer as always, e.g., by choosing "Documents" (or "My Document" on Windows XP) in the Start menu and double clicking on the "My Kindle Content". You may need to adjust the "View" of your folder window to see thumbnails. (See the first screen shot below.)

If you still don't see cover images, please try cleaning up your thumbnails cache. You can do it by choosing "Computer" in the Start menu, right-clicking on the "C:" drive, choosing "Properties", clicking on the "Disk Cleanup" button there, and click "OK" on the "Disk Cleanup" window. Make sure "Thumbnails" is checked on the "Disk Cleanup" window. (See the second screen shot below.) After the cleanup, close the folder window and reopen "My Kindle Content".

I know that thumbnail cache cleanup should be automatic, especially after a new install of MobiHandler. The problem is that I don't know how to do it from installer... If anybody here knows how to do it programmatically, please tech me. I very much love to know that!

Exclamation MobiHandler doesn't work with K4PC 1.5

I've just noticed that my MobiHandler doesn't work with recently released Amazon Kindle for PC (K4PC) version 1.5. If you install both my MobiHandler (any version) and K4PC 1.5 in a same PC, MobiHandler doesn't work.

It appears that Amazon changed the COM ProgID (an internal identifier used by Windows; not usually visible to users) for Kindle for PC, introducing File Association conflict with MobiHandler.

I'm working on fixing it. Sorry for inconvenience.

Thank you blossom and especially you, Alissa, for your special help with this.

I don't know why I can't get this to work for me. I have Vista. I know the shell is downloaded, I ran the Disk Cleanup and made sure the thumbnail cache was checked, I clicked on View and clicked on icons - and still all I can get is at best a small blue generic picture of a book next to each title. If I right click on a book and go to Properties and choose Mobi, then I can see a thumbnail, but not otherwise. What am I missing? Something obvious, no doubt! =}

MOBI property page works but no thumbnails ... it sounds like a similar behaviour to blossom's case with MobiHandler 1.0.

Just to make sure, pendragginp, you have downloaded the version 1.1.1166, i.e., mobihandler-1-1-1166-setup.msi, don't you?

Yes I did; I had downloaded the earlier version, but I uninstalled that through Programs on the Control Panel and then downloaded the new version yesterday. It does show that version as being the one on my computer. =/

Vista is finicky. You might try clearing the thumbnail cache a few times and rebooting sometimes helps new changes to take effect.

I can't remember now if I restarted after I cleared the thumbnail cache. I'll clear again and try that.

both of you.

Well, I've gone through all the steps several times and still no joy. Ah well.

But a marvelous thing, Alissa, I do thank you, and hope to be able to use it at some point!
