Microsoft Codec pack allows viewing of PEF files in Windows Explorer

Very useful! I don't use PEF, going to check if it works with DNG. Potentially useful to some.

Enticing the Light blog post re codecs

Link to Microsoft downlaod page

OK, found the DNG version too.

Thanks. I'll look for the DNG ones. May be worth posting them here too - may be useful to someone.

The Codecs was updated only a couple of months ago, faster handeling of PEF, but still no Pentax DNG

Coral Aftershot Pro and PPS Pro x4 also handles Native Pentax DNG and PEF

There is no such thing as Pentax DNG, DNG is universal.

Here are the DNG codecs DNG Codec - Adobe Labs

I installed the MS codec upgrade but Windows Explorer (Win 7) still doesn't display PEF files.

Maybe I installed the wrong version.... going to check....

..... I had. I read AMD64 as being for AMD chips and I'd installed the 32-bit version.

All is now good.
