XnView crashes on DB use.

Post by Henry_Jones » Thu Sep 15, 2011 10:03 am

Hello,

XnView crashes repeadetly when accessing the XnView.db file. At least this is my conclusion after searching for the reason why it would work sometimes and sometimes not. If I delete XnView.db I can view a single picture with the setting - Fullscreen Viewer. I have a two monitor setting, so the picture is actually fullscreen on the second monitor and the browser is open on the first.

If I close the program and open it with another picture it silently crashes. No message is show.

If I change the Startmode to "Fullscreen Editor" I can view the picture (alas not on the second monitor) and close XnView without problems. But it crahes when I try to open the browser.

Everything works for one picture after deleting XnView.db. This file gets created even I have disabled the thumbnail cache.

The PC is in a domain and the settings (AppData/Roaming) are on a remote server (it is used directly without a drive letter). But even moving the DB to a local folder does not change the behavior.

On my home PC the problem is not present, but it's neither in a domain nor has it a second monitor.

What informations are neccessary to solve this problem ?

I did not found xnview.db-journal, but after deleting xnview.db again it works for now. :?

If it happens again, I'll be back ;)
