Pass ALL selected files as parameters to an external program

Post by electro » Sun Dec 25, 2016 12:59 am

I'm using XnView 2.34 on Win 7. Let's say I'm in the browser mode and I select 200 files. Then I'm running an external program (through Open With) to process them. The problem is that XnView doesn't send all of them, but about 20. What should I do to increase the limit to get all the selected files? Is there any trick to get all those selected files (at least to save the files' complete paths to a text file)?

Thanks for reply. I don't see this option in xnview.ini. Should I add it manually? If yes, where (exact place)?

Yes, please add it in [Start] section.

E.g.:
[Start]
OpenWithMax=100
