Windows Photo Viewer cannot open this picture because you don't have the appropriate permissions to access the location of the file. »

Separated from this thread.

I have the same problem when I try to access some of my photos through any method (File Explorer, IE, Windows Photo Viewer, etc.).  When I try to display the image, I get an error message that says "Windows Photo Viewer cannot open this picture because you don't have the appropriate permissions to access the location of the file."  A few photos in the folder open very well.

The photos are stored on the hard drive of PC in the pictures folder.  Not all pictures are affected - some I can always access.  I tried to run your AutoCorrect tool - it has not fixed the problem.  I tried to add "everyone" by your above statement and he could not solve the problem.  While it was updating the permissions for everyone, it displays the following error message: "unable to enumerate the objects in the container.  Access is denied. »

  • Windows Photo Viewer cannot open this picture because you don't have permission to access the location of the file

    I reinstalled my computer using the same disk of win7 recovery for sale.

    But I found files in the folder (windows.old) could not open, even the files could be moved to a new place.

    I could review the authorization of certain files, but several folders could not be revised approval, which include many files of images or movie files.

    I want to know how to solve the problem (you might consider the photos and movies could be challenged).

    Thank you!

  • Photo Gallery can't open this picture because you do not have permission to the location of the file asscess

    I had to format my pc yesterday and I can't access my photos on my hardrive 2ndry can anyone help this is the message I get when I try to view them
    Photo Gallery can't open this picture because you do not have permission to the location of the file asscess RJ

    I recently started having the SAME problem. Windows Photo Viewer working wonder in the past months on the same exact images without any problems.

    I suspect that Microsoft update the code somewhere which pushed as an update - what is now the cause of the problem.

    As a diagnosis, I tried with the right button "open with...". "and chose the paint. The same file opened without any problem.

    All the pictures are generated for all images without problem.

    Still, Windows Photo Viewer cannot display ALL my image files. Paint has no problem.

    Similarly, right click 'open with... '. "and choose Microsoft Office 2010. Loading the image without any problems.

    If the original poster has the same success using other programs - then the problem is with the Windows Photo Viewer - Microsoft of not having it recognize permissions for the code or something.

    It's on Windows 7 Professional 64 - bit. Latest updates applied Microsoft.

  • Windows Photo Viewer cannot open this file because the file seems to be corrupted, damaged or too big.

    I am on Windows 7 and using Photo Viewer to watch 5 tiff files. I can open all tiff files in photoshop or psp, but not in photoviewer. Here, I can open only 2 smaller files. Is there a limit of size on the photo viewer (it seems). The files that I can not open are 1.45

    Hello
     
    a. like you said that the size of file that 1.45, could you give the exact size in MB, GB or KB?
    b. Since the photoviewer is used to display basic tiff files, if the file contains additional metadata information that can not be played on photoviewer it could give you the error message.
    1 copy these pictures on another computer in Windows 7 and check if the files open.
    2. you can also try to change the file format and check if it converts in this format and it opens correctly.
    You can see the following article on changing the file format.
    I hope this helps.

    Thank you, and in what concerns:

  • Windows Photo Viewer cannot open this photo because either way, Photo Viewer does not support this file format, either you do not have the latest updates to Photo Viewer

    New PC with Windows 7.  Photos taken before the new PC either cannot be a spectator, or can be displayed but are in the right folder with the incorrect file names (e.g. cat photo is labeled as DOG)

    In my case, when I plugged in my phone on my desk, it prompted me to update the software to communicate better with my phone. Immediately after completing the update was when I lost the ability to open images in Photo Viewer.

    To solve the problem, I went to control panel, and then uninstall a program and then uninstalled the newest program associated with my phone. It was easy since I knew exactly when he started to act up. Some of you may need some trial and error to find the problem.

  • Windows Photo Viewer cannot open this photo because Photo Viewer does ' t support this file format, or you do not have the latest updates to Photo Viewer

    Others have had problems similar to mine and I read all the posts but nothing seems to solve my problem.

    I saved a bunch of pictures in a folder on an external flash drive that were originally attachments in e-mail messages. They run very well on the disc and I opened and one closed the reader a couple of times but now I can't seem to open it in the viewer of photos or any other viewers. I have other pictures on the same drive in other folders and they open without any problems.

    The first time it happened I display thumbnails but could not open them. I just insterted my flash drive to see what was going on, and now I can see only 3 thumbnails on a total of about 50 photos. A lot of disk space too.

    Any suggestions anyone. Thanks a lot if you can try to help him.

    Hello pentax12,

    It should not make difference if the folder has been shared or not to see the photos.
    I suggest you see if you can copy them to the hard drive and then try to open in the Gallery of photos or a different default viewer.

    Let us know.

    Thank you

    Hello

    I had some files in my recent windows 7 the name of the color of my files and folders become green but I didn't know what happens later.
    After awhile, I changed my windows and I install the same windows 7 86 x just like before.
    I can't open these files that retain the names of Greens.
    These files are almost JPEG and PSD(Photo shop).
    I can't copy, cut. name change. delete, then open them with any computer, such as windows photo viewer software, photo shop, see ACD and other software.
    I surfed on the Internet and someone said that there is a software which is $ 26 but there is no guarantee that it works and files could not be opened.
    someone said your question to help Microsoft because they are the only one who have the codec for this file.
    Perhaps because the user or changed windows shows this error code.

  • Windows Photo Viewer cannot open *.tif files

    Hi Windows Photo Viewer don't open no * tif files on computers Dell desktop running Windows Pro 8.1 and Windows 7 Professional.

    Do not use a drive.

    Tried system restore, but does not solve the problem.

    Windows posted a temporary fix (https://support.microsoft.com/en-sg/kb/2635500), but recommended "If you are not severely affected by this problem, we recommend you wait for the next software update, which will include this fix."

    Windows finally gets out the permanent fix for users?  Still waiting.

    The patch in KB2635500 appears directed at problems with files TIF MultiPage (usually of the faxes).  Do you do business with?  You get the error message that is mentioned in the article?

    If this isn't the case, what exactly happens when you try to open a single TIF file (non-multi-site)?  Is it just does not open or you get an error message?  If the latter, what is the full text of the error message?

    It is possible that the Windows System File Checker can solve this problem.  Open an elevated command prompt (right click > run as administrator) and enter the command:

    sfc/scannow

  • Windows Photo Viewer stopped opening PNG files

    Using Windows 7, 64 bit. Windows Photo Viewer no longer displays one. PNG file. He has always worked in the past. I get the error message

    Windows Photo Viewer cannot open this picture because the file seems corrupted, altered, or is too large.

    A similar message is obtained from Windows Live Photo Gallery

    Microsoft Picture Manager is OK, like paint, Irfanview, Picasa and many other programs.

    I've updated MS .NET to 4.5 as suggested in another post.

    This also affects the ability of the Explorer to display thumbnails when the photo viewer is the default program for PNG.

    Your system ceased to display PNG files after Microsoft Update KB2670838 was delivered to your computer through Windows updates in late February 2013.

    Software developers cannot possibly predict all future updates that Microsoft will make to its operating system or applications. Do us, however, solve the problems when they occur and publish updates as necessary.

    A more reasonable notice might suggest looking for an update of the FastPictureViewer Codec Pack instead of pointing the finger and recommending other users to uninstall our product that if it turns out, was not directly responsible for the issue.

    You also do not mention that uninstall the FastPictureViewer Codec Pack - while setting the PNG issue you know - also disabled Explorer thumbnails and previews of the Windows for Adobe PSD, EPS Photo Viewer, I and the other 40 formats support us.

    The compatibility problem that resulted from the installation of KB2670838 was identified and corrected since, as well as another problem of compatibility that is revealed only after the release of Microsoft Office 2013.

  • Problems with the Windows on Windows 7 Photo Viewer, cannot open the picture

    Good evening!

    I can't open a few photos that I downloaded from my digital camera's SD card.  They are all in the same folder, and they are all JPEG.  Some of them are open very well, but there are MANY who are not open and I get the message: 'Windows Photo Viewer cannot open this photo because Photo Viewer does not support this file format, or you do not have the latest updates for Photo Viewer. "  As I said, they are all JPEG, as well as the Windows Photo Viewer is already set as my default Photo Viewer.   When I opened the window of the picture viewer I have not been invited for updates.

    I don't understand why some of my photos to shoot to the top of fine and the rest don't pull up at all.   Where will ensure that I have the latest update?  You have any other suggestions?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Looks like there are probably good copies elsewhere then... I was worried, you might well have lost some of your photos, and it is always better to access the card and copy and paste the files (and then check that they are ok) before using the software download and the removal from the Board. If the files have been corrupted somehow during the transfer process, they can still be recoverable in respect of the SD card using something like the free version of "recuva" providing that the SD card has not been re-used and previous files overwritten by new material. However, if your sister still photos as well which should not be necessary.

    I don't think this is likely to be a problem with the photo viewer, but let us know when you received that email... all the best - Ric.
