I needed to push out a Windows WMF workaround using regsrv32.exe as quickly as possible. Here's how I did it.

SOLUTION: Create a new Simple App

In Path to File, use %windir%\system32\regsvr32.exe
In Parameters,use -u -s %windir%\system32\shimgvw.dll

  • The -u stands for Unregister
  • The -s stands for Silent (and is optional, if you choose to take the -s out, a user will be presented a box telling them the above .dll has been unregistered.
