View PDF Thumbnail

Hi.
Is it possible to view Thumbnails of PDF files on a Server 2008 R2?
It works on pictures, but not on PDF files.
I can get it to work when clicking on a PDF file then it is showing it on the right side.

I have tried to run pdf-thumb-enable.reg downloaded from the internet but no help.

Thanks in advance Thumb
