decThumbsDBViewer

Post by *Dec » 2007-07-26, 07:38 UTC

1) Help me to collect a database about thumbs.db versions - in what version OS with what SP what version thumbs.db is used. The version is specified in the left bottom corner of a lister window.

2) Concerning use thumbs.db content in "Thumbnail mode" Ghisler has told:
I'm not using thumbs.db because it's undocumented and may change with future versions of Windows, or even with the next service pack.
I can add this functionality in my plugin. Is it necessary for someone?

Windows Vista does not use thumbs.db. Instead it makes some .db files in c:\Users\%user%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\.
It goes like:

Code: Select all

thumbcache_32.db
thumbcache_96.db
thumbcache_256.db
thumbcache_1024.db
thumbcache_idx.db
thumbcache_sr.db
Do you have any interest in supporting that also? Thanks.
TC for Linux please!

How exactly the version can be seen? All I got in the corner is the filename of the cached db.
Using Thumbs.db viewer 1.3.0.21

I want to add support tcthumbs.db. Can you explain a method of coding of the image in tcthumbs.idb?

Dec,
Thank you! :)
Would you consider adding support for TC's own thumbnail cache, and also perhaps ACDSee's?

TIA
Roman
Mal angenommen, du drückst Strg+F, wählst die FTP-Verbindung (mit gespeichertem Passwort), klickst aber nicht auf Verbinden, sondern fällst tot um.

If Ghisler will explain a principle of coding of thumbnails I with pleasure will add this format.

ACDSee's thumbnail cache format is VERY DIFFICULT to reverse engineering.
