    Hi gheiman,
    There are at least 3 potential solutions discussed in the link, with two of the potential solutions contained in the reader comments at the .  Are you sure you tried them all?   The one that seems most promising to me is contained in the response from Luke H, as shown below;

    "in the .reg file, the fix is applied to the WOW6432 node of the registry ONLY, which is not correct. Actually there are 2 locations that need to be patched:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



    Once these are both entered, the previews work fine!"
