I am running Windows XP Professional. I attempted to install a Sandisk docking port (I'm a tec novice - think that's what it's called) that would allow me to insert digital camera card so that I could transfer dig camera pics to my desktop. My daughter had already installed the digital camera (Samsung) disk and I uninstalled that program, thinking I needed to do that in order to install the SanDisk. Duh! Long story short, I believe that I deleted "eViewer.exe" in this process. When I now attempt to open a JPEG attachment to an e-mail, I get the above message (unable to locate eViewer.exe).
Help. Thanks!

If you have the disk that came with the camera you could try reinstalling eviewer. Alternatively you could go to my computer, select a hard drive and click on tools menu. Select folder options and click on file types tab. Scroll down to jpg, jpeg, etc. Select a file type and then click on the change button. At the top it should have several recommended programs that will enable you to view jpegs, select one and change the association.

The next time you go to open a jpg file it will open with the newly associated program.

Hello T-rex;

Have you tried to do a search for the file eviewer.exe in search.

If you have system restore active on your machine, why not just restore the computer back to when the file was there. All you have to do is - Go To - Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Scroll down to > System Restore. and click > Restore my computer to an earlier time.

If this doesn't work you can also use > Last Known Good Configuration. All you have to do - Go To > Start > Turn Off Computer > Click - Restart and just as Windows is booting up > Hit the Key F8 > Scroll down using arrow keys and highlight > Last Known Good Configuration and hit enter.

Hope this helps...
