You might try IrfanView... http://www.irfanview.net/
It will let you view, edit & print all kinds of files.
You may want to print these instruction and please pass on to anyone you
know who may be having this problem.
I went to www.bravareader.com/downloadreader.htm
and downloaded the free
reader on the left side of the screen
Then to associate the tif file with the reader I did the following:
Click on Start in lower LH corner
Left click on Default programs
Left click on Associate file type or protocol with a program
Wait a few seconds while it loads
Scroll down to .tif and click on it
Left click on Change Program at top right
Click on Browse
Scroll down to IGC folder and left double click the folder
Left double click on Brava Reader folder
Single left click on Brava Reader at the bottom
Click Open at lower right hand corner
Click OK and wait while the program finishes
You should now see Brava Reader next to the tif file in the list
Click on close and you are done!
But please note that rumours have it that this issue is fixed in the
upcoming Vista Service Pack 2.
