Dan,

Well exactly one year has gone by and I not have a way for you to get my File Viewer
I build a web site for myself (for my art work, not programming).
However, I loaded up the setups for a few of my utilities, including the File Viewer.
So if you are still interested, you can use the following program to download this utility.
This program to download is not a setup, just a compiled program (EXE). Just run it.
Your will see 4 utilities, just select the File Viewer and Download.

Happy New Year

Tony
