I am using the evaluation version of Graphics Mill.

When I load folder items into a ThumbNailListView control and set the View type to Thumbnails, I get the windows default thumbnail image instead of a thumbnail of the actual image file.

Any ideas that might cause this? Here is my code, which is taken from the "Using Work Areas" topic in the Aurigma help file.

        private void OpenDocument()
            if (openFileDialog.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
                String path = System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(openFileDialog.FileName);
                String documentFolder = System.IO.Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(openFileDialog.FileName);
                String documentPage = path + "\\" + documentFolder + "\\source\\1.dat";
                String thumbs = path + "\\" + documentFolder + "\\thumbs\\";
                JumpToPidl(Aurigma.GraphicsMill.WinControls.Pidl.Create(@thumbs), thumbnailListView);

        private void JumpToPidl(Aurigma.GraphicsMill.WinControls.Pidl pidl, Aurigma.GraphicsMill.WinControls.ThumbnailListView thumbnailListView)
            //Set the thumbnail view
            thumbnailListView.View = Aurigma.GraphicsMill.WinControls.View.Thumbnails;

            //Add necessary working areas
            Rectangle[] areas = {new Rectangle(0, 5, thumbnailListView.IconSpacing.X * 
                pidl.Items.Length, thumbnailListView.IconSpacing.Y)};
            thumbnailListView.WorkAreas = areas;

            //Clear all previously displayed items

            int itemIndex = 0;

            //Add each item in the folder to the thumbnail list
            foreach (Aurigma.GraphicsMill.WinControls.Pidl subPidl in pidl.Items)

                //Move the added item to a required working area
                thumbnailListView.MoveItemToWorkArea(itemIndex, 0);

It seems that Graphics Mill for .NET cannot load thumbnails from files for some reason. Try to load some of these files into Bitmap instance: you can write small application which calls Bitmap.Load method or just open some of them in the Main sample application. If some error occurs while load, it will show the reason of the problem.
