Netscape TIFF Image viewer setup for Windows NT

 
The default Wangimg (NT) or KodakImg (W2K) viewer will work fine for viewing the G4 TIFF files found on this web site. To determine if you have this program installed,
Select Start Programs Accessories Imaging.
Netscape Setup:
Select Edit Preferences Navigator Applications

If the TIFF type already exists, select Edit. Make sure the MIME Type is image/tiff. Select Application and browse to the wangimg.exe.
Usually found in (X):\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories\ImageVue, where (X) is the drive Windows NT is installed on, probably C at Fermilab.
Select OK to close the form, and OK again to close the Preferences form.

If the TIFF type doesn't exist, select New Type, fill in the form as shown below, again browsing to the wangimg.exe file as described above.
Select OK to close the form, and OK again to close the Preferences form.

NOTE: Some known problems
You have a program installed which will not handle the G4 TIFF files, but NT has the file type associated. Example: Adobe Photoshop, or possibly a plug-in.
To manually associate a file format with an application, but not the application's file icon:
1.) Choose Start Programs Windows Explorer.
2.) Select a file whose file format association you want to change. For example, if you want to change the file format association for all TIFF files, select a TIFF file.
3.) Press Shift+F10, or Shift+right-click the file you selected in step 2.
4.) Choose Open With from the pop-up menu. (If Open With is not available, repeat steps 2-3.)
5.) In the Open With dialog box, select the application with which you want to associate the file format. If the application isn't listed, click Other, then locate the desired application.
6.) Select the option labeled "Always use this program to open files of this type" and click OK.
7.)Repeat steps 1-6 for any other file format associations you want to change.
 
To associate a file format with an application and the application's file icon:
1.) Choose Start Programs Windows Explorer.
2.) Choose View Options (Windows 95 or Windows NT
4.0) or View Folder Options (Windows 98), and click the File Types tab.
3.) Select to the file type you want to associate with an application (e.g., JPEG Image) from the Registered File Types scroll box, then click Edit.
 
The wang image viewer is not very good at memory handling. If you open several files you will probably start getting an error every time you close a file. If this happens RIgh-Click in the Task Bar to bring up Task Manager, Select the Processes Tab, Click on Image Name to sort the existing processes by name, You will most likely see several wangimg.exe listings, Select each one and Choose End Process to eliminate them.
