Extended XnView has no XnViewShellExt64.dll

The installer and zip of extended XnView don't ship with XnViewShellExt64.dll. Therefore that function (F12-> System integration -> Use XnView Shell Extension) doesn't work on 64 bit system.

The standalone version works fine.

they have XnViewShellExt.dll, so you need to download it as separate package

I knew, but it doesn't make sense right? the "extended" version is supposed to have shell ex working without downloading additional files.

And even if I downloaded XnViewShellExt64.dll by myself, I still cannot use that "F12-> System integration -> Use XnView Shell Extension" option to enable it (because that option is hard-coded to use XnViewShellExt.dll); I have to either manually "regsvr32 XnViewShellExt64.dll" or use the installer of XnShell.

Not a big deal, but I think that (i.e. an option doesn't work) might need to be fixed :)
