My experience with codecs is related to decoding movie files of various formats and sub-formats.
What will a still picture codec (like this one) accomplish? Make D700 NEF's work with the thumbnail generator in MSexploder? other areas of Vista?

I was puzzled also, so I went ahead and downloaded it. That is exactly what it does. I can now click on a NEF file in explorer and you can see it, just like a jpeg file.
I wonder if it does anything else.

The codec is exactly for that. Not just Vista, but all supported Window's OS's. I'm not sure if this also helps any Nikon software make more or better sense of the new files. But I do like being able to see my NEF's in the folder w/o always opening up View, etc.
