shell ext windows x64...

Post by tmaes »

Hi,
I've installed xnview on my windows x64 and everything works fine,
but when I try the shell ext for 64bits I have a problem at the end of the install process, here is the screenshot:

I hope it can help you in debugging.
regards.

Same here, with the lastest version 1.91.5:

I tried from normal (x64) explorer, using explorer32 (from SysWOW64), installing on Program Files and on Program Files (x86)......

But no luck :(

Solved!
It works if you register the dll "by hand":

I used the standalone installer
http://download2.xnview.com/XnShellEx64.exe

Click ignore (so it will complete the installation and leave the files) and register with:

Code: Select all

regsvr32 "c:\Program Files (x86)\2D\XnView\ShellEx\XnViewShellExt.dll"
Change the path to your install folder.

By the way: Thank you Pierre for your efforts on every new version!!

It might be because the installer is 32-bit and only sees the 32-bit regsvr32, whereas the cmd window is 64-bit.
