Hello! What operating system does your computer have? (XP, Vista, 7) Was Windows Photo Viewer working before? If so, what changes were made to your computer? I mean did you install a new program? What I suggest that you try is to run sfc/scannow to check if it is a problem with your system files. Run the command prompt/CMD as administrator and typ sfc/scannow then press enter to let it run. It will scan your system and try to repair any problem with your system files. If it goes through without any errors, try running photo viewer again. If you are still having problems after doing this and photo viewer was working before, then you can try to restore your computer to a previous state by running system restore. You can also try booting from your windows cd and click start “Repair” from there. Hope this helps.

Hi!

Here I am to provide you with additional solution or option for you to solve this Windows Photo Viewer error.

First of all, the cause of this problem might be because of the incorrect task given to Windows Photo Viewer. Thus, Windows Photo Viewer can't open the desired photos.

In order to solve this problem, you must download the Windows Live Essential 2011 simply by visiting it's website. There, you are able to download this Windows Live Essential. Then, install it. The purpose of installing this Windows Live Essential is it can help you to solve that problem automatically.

Otherwise, please try this alternative solution. Firstly, select the Windows Explorer icon. Then, visit the Control Panel and choose Remove Programs. Next, find the Windows Photo Viewer and select it to be repaired. Finally, choose Repair option rather than Uninstall option.

Problem solved.

If you are using Windows Photo Viewer, that means you are probably using Windows 7 because it has a different name on other operating systems. In Microsoft Windows XP, it is called “Windows Picture and Fax Viewer” while in Windows Vista, it was replaced by “Windows Photo Gallery”.

It was re-established in Windows 7 using the name “Windows Photo Viewer” but was deprecated in Windows 10 in favor of “Photos”, a Windows Store app. I can’t seem to find a way to reinstall Windows Photo Viewer to possibly fix error “ox800736lb1”. If you encounter that error, make sure the format of the image you are viewing is supported.

Windows Photo Viewer supports the following image formats: BMP, JPEG, JPEG XR (formerly HD Photo), PNG, ICO, GIF, and TIFF. If you have a different image format, try viewing it using the program that supports it. Additionally, Windows Photo Viewer can view animated GIF files but there’s a difference between Windows Picture and Fax Viewer and Windows Photo Viewer on how they display GIF files.

With Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, it can display animated GIFs while with Windows Photo Viewer it can only display the first frame of the animated GIF file.
