Start "Explorer.exe"
Click "Tools", "Options", then "File Types" tab
find the "Registered File Type" for your
 current viewer(fax viewer), highlight it, then click edit.
under "Actions:" highlight "Open" then click "edit".
under "Application used to preform action:" the path may read something like this - c:\windows\faxwview.exe - or something similar.

You need to change this path to the path for your kodak imaging viewer .exe file
