Lightroom v4 DNG v6.6 Codec not updated for Thumbnails in Windows Explorer



Adobe Lightroom v4 allows you to EXPORT DNG as version 6.6, but Adobe DNG Codec is version 5.6 only! So obviously the DNG thumbnails FAIL to display in Windows Explorer on Windows 7, etc...



Obviously, Adobe needs to update their DNG Codec to version 6.6, so as to support Lightroom v4. When will that happen? We are all waiting.

labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/DNG_Codec (DNG Codec is v5.6).

Better yet, why doesn't Lightroom v4 just provide the appropriate DNG codec to be included for everyone using Lightroom v4 on Windows? So as to display DNG thumbnails without jumping through hoops?

In fact, how about a collection of "Camera Raw File Formats" to be supported for Lightroom, instead of buying additional support from www.fastpictureviewer.com that allow Windows Explorer to see them as Thumbnails? That would be very useful for ALL of us.

Adobe also doesn't provide Windows codecs for PDF (64-bit), PSD or PSB, and it doesn't provide PSB previews/thumbnails on Mac (Apple provides previews for PDF and PSD).

@John, you skipped over the Fact Adobe does provide DNG Codec for Windows 32/64bit as I linked above with labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/DNG_Codec



The problem was and remains to be the WRONG version is provided to support Lightroom v4 when photos are exported as DNG version 6.6! Because, Adobe provided version 5.6 instead.



@Dorin, turning off the fast load will NOT resolve the missing DNG Codec for v6.6 that is needed to display the thumbnail previews.
