I am using Emacs 22.1 on Windows XP like the OP. When I type M-x 
thumbs-dired-show-marked I just get empty squares displayed four rows wide. I 
marked six images and I got one row of four squares and a second row of two 
squares, all blank. I have tried M-x thumbs before and got similar results 
(namely, a block of sixteen empty boxes). I have also added the ImageMagick 
directory to the exec-path variable via a customization window, but 
unfortunately it did not help.
Thanks for your attention.
