Successful install in Windows 10 → nothing in context menu :'(

Post by lfr » Wed May 13, 2020 3:07 pm

Hi, I've successfully installed both XnShell 64bit and XnView 64bit in Windows 10 1909, XnView works well but I don't get anything in explorer's context menu. Installed as admin, closed explorer.exe as requested, restarted, nothing seems to make it show up. I also don't get any thumbnails for .eps files. Please help!

It works on jpg files, there's a context menu entry for XnShell

No, I don't, I didn't have anything associated with .eps files before installing XnView

you should have GS x32bits, but if you use XnShelllEx x64, you need GS x64bits too

I installed it, it opens files correctly but there's no change in context menu even after closing/restaring explorer.exe.

Ok I managed to get the context menu entry by unchecking "no thumbnail for .eps files" in options, but explorer still doesn't show thumbnails instead of icons, is this not a feature of XnShell?.
