Hello,
I am having problems using the vista xps viewer.
I have dot net 3. and viewer turned on. just like this:
To find out if you have .NET Framework 3.0
1. Click the Start button , click Control Panel, and then click
Programs.

2. Under Programs and Features, click Turn Windows features on or
off. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation,
type the password or provide confirmation.

3. Look for .NET Framework 3.0 in the list of features. If it's
listed, double-click the folder to view its contents.

4. In the .NET Framework 3.0 folder, make sure that the XPS Viewer
check box is selected, and then click OK.



I have also tried to create a shortcut like this
C:\Windows\System32\XPSViewer\XPSViewer.exe %1
and drag the xps file on it. But nothing happens.
I do not even see the process starting in the task manager

also I do see the XPSViewer.exe file in that directory.


any ideas?
thanks

FIX: You cannot open an XPS document by using the Microsoft XPS Viewer on a
Windows Vista x64 edition-based computer that has .NET Framework 3.5 SP1
installed
