Configuring OE6 to work with NikonViewer6

Hi,

NikonViewer6 is the software that came with my digiCam. On my PC, I had no
problems installing and setting up. One feature that was really great is the
resize and email photo. This feature resizes the picture and bring up OE6
compose mail window (or any default email programs) with the resized pictures
attached.

I am having a problem on my laptop. After resizing, NikonViewer6 is unable
to bring up OE6, even though it recognized that OE6 is my default email
program. All I get is a small popup with a red "X" icon, a "OK" button and no
error message, but it is clear that the operation failed. I think its a
communication problem between the 2 programs. Any suggestions on how to fix
this is much appreciated. Thanks.

Is that the software that came with the camera or is updated on their web
site and free to download or the one they want you to buy instead? I haven't
looked nor installed the other software in quite a while for my 990.

The red X is just a place holder and it may not be communicating with OE as
to the picture if it's not been saved to the hard drive.Try saving it first
then see if you can email it.
