Win95 wants Iexplorer for JPEGs:what part?

Deleting Int. Explorer in favor of Navigator has caused multi headaches. Most recently, Win95 won't open JPEG images
but says instead that it can't find iexplorer.exe. No (Edited by Computer101), Sherlock! What's the best way to fix this? If I need to reinstall a component of the Explorer, what? Thanks

You can just assign a different viewer for JPEG images.
First, double click My Computer Icon to start it.  Then select View->Options.  Once Options box pops up select File Types tab.  That will show you all the file types your computer would recognize.  Scroll list box down to JPEG image and double click on it.  It will show Edit File Type dialog box, select 'open' under Actions and click Edit .  Click browse and browse your computer for a new viewer to use with JPEG images. Optionally, you can clear 'Use DDE' checkbox if your new applications doesn't use it (most of the viewers don't).  Once it's done, click OK and Ok again to save options.
That should do it,

Val, you started off hot but dropped the ball: finish me up, here! "browse your computer for a new viewer" Off the top of my head, I wouldn't recognize such a viewer if I tripped over it! Win 95 must have such an app. Can you tell me what to look for? "you can clear DDE...." Right, but what is DDE, and what would be gained by clearing that checkbox?

The simplest solution is "Install a new imageviewer" try Image commander or PSP from www.jasc.com or ACDsee or Lview... When you install these, they assign gifs, jps etc to themselves..

Unfortunately W95 only ships with Iexplorer for image viewing.

I already installed LviewPro & it's well-worth the $30. Still- I'll try the association you advised, even though I'll be surprised if pbrush can open anything other than bmp's. Thanks
