Decode Windows Error Message
This nifty note on how to read microsoft error messages from: http://www.win-max.org/Attempting_to_use_FAXCOMEXLib_dll_from__NET-3504841-3850-a.html
The error code 0x80070483 is a standard HRESULT value. The value of 7 in the
first half indicates that is a Win32 error code. The second half is the
actual code, 0x483 which is 1155. Typing 'net helpmsg 1155' on a
command-line displays the following message
"No application is associated with the specified file for this operation."
So your problem is in fact with some file association. You can try restoring
the file association for TIFF to the standard 'Windows Picture & Fax Viewer'
in Windows Explorer > Folder Options. File Types. For most users the command
line should read:
"rundll32.exe :WINDOWSsystem32shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen %1"
