I'm using the very latest version 2.39 of Xnview, but this has been a bug for a few versions, and on three different Windows 7/Windows 10 machines that I use.
To reproduce the bug:Tools -> Create -> Slide Show -> Add Folder -> pick a folder containing Canon .CR2 raw & jpg files (I use an EOS 5DII) -> Go
...results in either an instant crash, or it will show a few images and then crash: "XnView for Windows has stopped working
". A typical crash report is appended below.
You can see for yourself that it happens with even just a single
RAW file in the folder. Here is a dropbox link to a zipped example folder which crashes for me (containing just 1 RAW file and the corresponding JPG file): https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/741 ... Layout.zip
There are two weird things about this:
(1) The images themselves are always fine, and can be viewed in Xnview. They only trip up the Slide Show mode.
(2) It only seems to happen on folders of images that were taken in the past year and a half, or so. Older ones from the same 5DII are ok, and all folders from my other cameras (Fuji, Kodak etc.) are also ok.
I ran a disk check to make sure that the filesystem structure was ok. In any case, the crashes occur with both an internal HDD and a separate copy of the folders on an external drive; it's very unlikely that both have the same corruption.
