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

Hi thanks for your answer.

But it doesnt make any difference on the server or on my Windows 7 x64.

Any other ideas?

install this http://www.pretentiousname.com/adobe_pdf_x64_fix/Adobe_Reader_x64_fixes_v3_001_installer.zip and it will work on windows 7 x64, not sure about the server version, could work too, but might require a reboot.
