When I had software which generated 12 and 14 bit depth TIFs, on Windows 
XP, the desktop Explorer would reboot the machine when you tried to use 
the viewer.

I had the Photometrics viewer which could bring them up, and my own 
python program.  However windows crashed on several TIFs.  It isn't
a surprise to hear that you had problems with the viewer.  The files 
convert to PDF just fine, however.

Thanks to Mark G for scanning them, as well.
