    But I still can't get PDF thumbnails showing in explorer. I use Windows 8 64-bit.
    The thumbnail feature does not work stable on 64-bit system, some works, some not works.And it is still under processing.
    Some content of files are not allowed to be previewed then it will show as Foxit icon, for example, secured pdf file.

    The thumbnail feature does not work stable on 64-bit system, and some content of files are not allowed to be previewed then it will show as phantom icon, for example, secured pdf file.

    From this thread http://forums.foxitsoftware.com/show...ail-generation, it seems Foxit does not generate thumbnail as icons on 64-bit system at all. I'm curious how did you manage to get some thumbnails, if not all.

    For further analysis, may i know which edition and version number of Foxit PhantomPDF do you use?

    FoxitPDFInfo.dll exists. Standard version 5.1.2.0305

    I suspect the "Shell Extentions" is not installed completely so it caused this issue.Would you mind uninstalling Foxit PhantomPDF manually and reinstalling it by checking "Shell Extentions" during installation process and give it a try?
    You do not need to re-activate the license code as long as you install it in the same directory as previous installation.

    started a topic Feature Foxit icon vs thumbnail in Windows Explorer

    Foxit icon vs thumbnail in Windows Explorer

    In Windows 7 Explorer, some PDF's appear as thumbnails with the Foxit icon in the lower right corner, some appear as the Foxit icon only. What causes the difference, and how can I make them all thumbnails?
