anti crash option

Post by RGhost » Thu Oct 15, 2009 12:41 pm

I've been using xnview over last several years and I'm very pleased with it. But for now it has a lot of crashes. But it is not big problem to me except for one thing : when I startup xnview after crash it doesn't open last opened folder.

Is there any way to force xnview to write down "last opened folder" into .ini file each time when I change browsing folder?

I can't answer this question exactly. But I have suspicion these crashes are connected with last nvidia drivers and active nview desktop.
Crashes happen in different situations. For example, it crashes when I switch from view image mode to browsing mode, when I switch form another program window to xnview, sometime it crashes when I just browsing folder with a lot of images...
When it crashes xnview doesn't give any massage of the error, it shuts down.

I don't have such problems with any other used programs. I'm using last version of xnview with win xp64sp2.

Thats why I don't report about bug because I can't define sequence of steeps leading to error.

Could you try to disable option/View/Misc>Read ahead/Cache behind?

The is not in that. But seems to me I have found what leads to crash of xnview.

I have been working simultaneously with xnview and 3dsmax and often switch between them. Sometimes confusing windows I press F4 several times in xnview. This leads to crash xnview.

I checked it on different PC-s. Where by default .jpeg,.png... etc. in the explorer are not associated with an editor.

step by step:

1. run xnview.
2. open any jpg or png.
3. press F4 (rapidly) 2-10 times.
xnview crashed.

xnview crashed.
But when you press F4, the associated program is opened, and xnView is no more on focus...

If no editor is associated for this type of file, focus is not lost and xnview is crashing.
