Help, can't my K5II image preview in windows

I just got my new K5II and was trying to compare images, but all I get is icons and no preview
Not to mention ta Coral AfterShot Pro won't load the images all together.

Is the Pentax K5II PEF file different from the K7?

PEF fron a K5? I thought the K5 only did Adobe standard RAW.

I had to download several codecs and files in order for my RAW files from my K5 to be seen on my computers.

It is, every RAW except DNG is camera specific so K7 PEF is different then K5 PEF
Using DNG is the most simple solution, you can download DNG codec at Adobe for windows.

My computers have no trouble reading the raw files from my K5IIs,but I'm running my raw files as DNGs.

That's why every new Pentax that comes out has a new version of the included software, don't install the latest one if you use pef format from a older body , the software won't read it.

now thats not true, because I did install it hoping it would fix the codec issues with the PEF from my K5II and it (Ver 4.4 of DCU) reads all my K7 PEF's
