Solved How to make doubleclick kodakprv.exe work in windows 7

September 12, 2016 at 05:28:44
Specs: Windows7
Hi,
Some people may have the same issue, and I tried checking registries, local security policy, run as administrator, compatibility mode and could not find the solution. The problem is:
The application originally created for Windows XP (kodakprv.exe to be exact) and when I moved to Windows 7 or Windows 10, when I double-clicked it, nothing happens, as soon as I rename it (to Kodakprv1.exe for example), it opens when I doubleclick it. Any idea?
Thanks.
Francis

If it works OK with the name change it doesn't seem like that would be a problem. Or I guess you could start the name-changed version from a .bat file that has the original name. That is, a file named kodakprv.bat that loads kodakprv1.exe

Hi beachyhbt,
Thanks for your quick response. I have done researching before posting the question. I have tried the approach from your suggested solution before and unfortunately it did not work. Again, renaming the file to other name works with no issue. Any other suggestion?
Thanks.
Francis

Why do you even need kodakprv.exe when there are other alternatives?

I wonder if windows 7 keeps a compatibility list of programs it won't allow to run because they're older. Normally you'd need to install something like 'xp mode' to run older software that won't run on windows 7. It's odd that a name change makes it run. If you now change the name back to what is was originally does it not work again?

There was a 'windows 7 compatibility center' described here:

that may have helped but the compatibility center page linked to there seems to be dead.

Unfortunately renaming the "new" file to the original filename renders the application not launching when doubleclicking it. I have decided to use other image viewer. However, if anyone know the reason and has suggestions, please post it and I would like to know how to resolve the problem. Thanks.
