Olympus - http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/digicamera/download/software/codec/index.cfm (does not look like it supports Windows 7 ?

That is an Olympus delivered codec for Windows 7. Microsoft also supplies codecs. Both are free. The codecs are different installs for 32 bit Windows or 64 bit Windows.

Microsoft programs like Windows Explorer and Windows Live Photo Gallery use these codecs for displaying thumbnails or more.

Raw editing programs like Lightroom, Photoshop, etc.. AFAIK do not use these codecs. Adobe creates their own driver files (Adobe Camera Raw) for their programs.

On one machine, I have got Windows 7 working fine, showing thumbnails. Not on another
