XnView Shell Extension v4.0 is available

- full unicode support
Clicking on the image preview just open XnView not the image, going back to v3.60 fixed the problem
Works for me with "To open picture, use" set to "Associated Program" and I only recently switched back to XnView Classic from XnViewMP
Win10 Pro x64 RS4 1803, Malwarebytes Premium, Process Lasso Pro
XnView Classic and PhotoFiltre Studio X

Hello,

I was using XnView Shell Extension version 3.5.1, unregistered it, downloaded the new version (XnShellEx64.zip), replaced the files, registered it and it worked. So far so good. I noticed that in 'Options' - 'Displayed Menu items' there was a change - 'File's icon' was replaced with 'Resize', so I enabled it. 'Resize' appeared in Windows shell but the drop-down menu did not work:

Compare it with for example 'Rotate', showing drop-down menu just right:

Image

Am I missing something or this is a bug?

By the way I could not find the change log for the latest version which I am not sure whether it is 4.0.0 as shown in 'About' or 4.0.1 (file version shown as 4.0.1.0).

Regards

Thank you very much, I re-downloaded it and 'Resize' drop-down menu is shown properly:

Indeed the file 'XnViewShellExt-Resize.txt' was missing in the previous archive.

Program solved, thanks for the quick fix!

After watching your video, it seems to me this problem has nothing to do with XnView Shell Extension, maybe it's a SO or Photoshop related issue. Have you tried to check on the Photoshop memory settings?

One more question: the menu used to freeze when you opened the context menu within the Photoshop Save as dialog, right?

If so, maybe the integration of the extension with the OS shell plus the Photoshop dialog box is the reason for the freezing. But it's just a guess.

yes, it is freezing only photoshop, explorer is working fine during this freezing. But i remember what before it was works, it may what my OS has problem, so i am asking to check somebody who have photoshop.

I just made a test here, but with Corel Photo-Paint (I don't have Photoshop). I created and saved one simple PSD file. With it still opened in the program, I opened the Save as dialog again, clicked on the very same file I've just saved to launch the context menu and the XnView Shell Extension showed the file's thumbnail — from within the Photo-Paint Save as dialog — without freezing.

Image

Maybe it's also a matter of file size, memory, etc. Just thoughts to help you find a fix. Good luck!
