[Strange problem] TC with XnView (thumbnails)

Post by *SanskritFritz »

Options / Thumbnails / Get from Irfan-/Xnview for: *

Do the following:
  • View a jpg in XnView, leave it in the background, switch back to TC
  • Restart TC
  • Switch to thumbnail mode, the thumbnails are not shown
  • TC consumes 100% processortime
  • TC periodically vanishes behind the XnView
  • there are 2 instances of XnView in the process list

Hm, not confirmed under WinXP SP2 with XNView 1.82.2

I also set XNView for viewing images in Lister for testing (I use Imagine), but still can't reproduce the described exffect...

Now it would be interesting to know the difference in the configs. Could be an XnView problem as well.

Maybe a settings problem? I once had such a similar problem when setting the viewer (don't remember if iview or xnview) to maximized.

Well, I use the standard version of XNView without installer (XnView-win.zip, ~4 MB). did you try already check if the issue still occurs with a blanked xnview.ini?

I also could send you my ini if you'd like to diff it with yours.

EDIT
Ah I was too slow once again. OK, I'll check that.

OK, can someone with this error report this to the Xnview author, please? He shouldn't maximize xnview when it is started with the hidden parameter...
