  1. Suddenly unable to install xps viewer with gpo enabled


    hello,

    a few weeks ago i had users requesting to install xps viewer so i enabled the following gpo "Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Specify settings for optional component installation and component repair" with the "download repair content and optional featues from wsus" option checked. it fixed the issue and they were able to install. now, another user wants it and they are unable to install. all prior installations still work. i can upload the dism.log to another platform if someone wants to examine it. i appreciate your time.

    :)

    XPS Viewer has stopped working

    Hello Fred,

    The XPS Viewer might have been corrupted while your were updating the computer. Usually, uninstalling and re-installing the said program should be able to resolve the issue. To remove and reinstall the XPS Viewer follow the steps below:

    • Go to Control Panel: right-click the Start button or press
      Windows+X on your keyboard, then select “Control Panel” from the menu that pops up.
    • Click “Programs” in the list and then select “Turn Windows features on or off” under Programs and Features.
    • Look for XPS Viewer and uncheck it. Click “OK” and Windows will apply whatever changes you made.
      Note: Depending on the features you enabled or disabled, Windows may require you reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.
    • Open “Turn Windows features on or off” and check the XPS Viewer to reinstall it.

    We'll keep an eye out for your response.

    old XP viewer for windows vista

    Microsoft for some reason (???) rendered the viewer that comes with Windows unable to play the animation in GIF images... I know there is IrFan viewer ( and im currently using in vista ) to view images, but personally i prefered the simpler viewer XP had for watching those small animations. Is there a way to run the old XP image viewer in vista? Is somewhere downloadable?
