Autopano Tour 1.0.9 and 1.1.0 beta 11 crashing when browsing for files
Having recently moved to a new computer using Windows 7 64 bit, I am unable to use Autopano Tour version as supplied by default in Autopano Giga 2.0.9 nor the current 64 bit 1.1.0 beta 11. Any time I try to add a panorama, I get briefly an error - image attached, and the application closes.
After some research I have discovered that when opening any window in Auto Pano Tour that allows you to browse the hard drive, the application will crash with that error any time if finds a folder with an image in it!
This also happens when I try to browse to my licence files, so I cannot even register the program.
I have tried starting the computer in safe mode but the problem is the same.
If anyone can help me with this I would be grateful.
2. AFAIK you cannot import NEF images into Autopano Tour or Panotour so can you not just place the pano images in an acceptable format in another folder (where there are no NEF images) before importing them to Autopano Tour or Panotour?

Re: Autopano Tour 1.0.9 and 1.1.0 beta 11 crashing when browsing for files
Thak you for the suggestion ThomasK. I had already tried that but soon realised that it was Codecs that were to blame which, sadly, are unaffected by disabling startup programs.
Thank you, Mediavets, for the suggestions too. I will download Panotour to see if that works. You are correct about NEF files not being supported but I discovered FastPictureViewer codecs appeared to kick in even when there were no NEF files present. I recall that it has a faster JPEG rendering engine in place of Win 7's so I think the library file gets initialised even when there are no NEF files present.
I believe the download version works for a few weeks without needing to be purchased.
Just to give you more information, I can make use of Panotour and Autopano Tour if I drag the files into the app instead of trying to browse to them in the usual manner. Saving can be hazardous if the destination folder has jpegs in it - the app will crash, sometimes not immediately but after several seconds , as if it were taking time to find the jpegs before giving the error.
My impression is that the error is only produced when using an open/save window which happens to have jpegs in the folder.
