Windows XP - Unable to rotate image

October 2016


I'm unable to rotate the images in the Pictures and Fax viewer tool of WIndows XP.
The buttons are grayed out!


  • Close the Picture and Fax viewer
  • Click on Start > Run > enter the following command and press Enter.
  • regsvr32 shimgvw.dll
  • You shall get this message:

  • Open the Picture and Fax viewer and try again.
