    Can anyone tell me whether a Codec for ORF files (E-M5) is available for Windows 7 (and provide a link)? I shoot Raw exclusively and would like the capability of seeing thumbnails of the ORF files in Windows Explorer.

    I know that a Codec for NEFs (for my Nikon D300 and D80) exists, but I'm not sure about ORFs.

    Thanks!

    Yes, they are the ones.

    If you are running any flavour of Win7 64-bit, get the first one, don't be put off by amd in the name, it doesn't matter which processor you have.

    Good info. And thanks for pointing out which one to download. I was wondering if the AMD was the correct version for my x64 system.

    Thanks for the link -- but it's not working for me. :confused:

    On my Win7 laptop, Internet Explorer shuts down when I try downloading. So, I went to the site in the link using my desktop PC (Windows Vista-64), hoping to download and save an executable file to a thumbdrive, transfer that to the Win 7 laptop and install from there. But apparently there's no way to save an executable file for this.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Could be you AV won't let you download?

    Here is the 32 bit version https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1282281/MicrosoftCodecPack_x86.msi

    Here is the 64 bit version https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1282281/MicrosoftCodecPack_amd64.msi

    Here they both are in a winzip archive (should get by AV). https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1282281/Win7Codec.zip

    It's not working with Windows 8, and I downloaded the Windows 8 version. I wonder if it's because I have the preview of Windows 8.1. Ugh!!

    The July version still doesn't list the E-P5 as being covered yet.

    This worked fine for me (win 7 64) : OLYMPUS Digital Camera : OLYMPUS RAW codec
    First of all remove the Microsoft Camera Codec Pack !
    Then install OLYMPUS RAW codec
    The first time didn't work, but i clean the registry and then repair the program and everything worked , and now i have thumbernails ;)

    That's the one I'm using fine as well (on Win7 64 bit). To get to that page there is an Accept or Reject option on here (it may look like the same link as above but it is the page before). OLYMPUS Digital Camera : OLYMPUS RAW codec
