file date/time not changed when saving

Post by klapperstorch » Fri Sep 30, 2011 6:33 pm

In XnView version 1.98.2 I notice that the date/time of an image file does not change when I save the modified image.
It worked in previous versions.
I have the checkmark OFF for: Options - General - File Operations - "Keep date/time for saving".
Is this problem known?

I did some tests:
The problem appears also with previous releases of XnView.
It exists only with my non-privileged userid on Windows XP.
Logged on as an administrator, the problem does not show.
However, under my userid all other programs change the file date/time when they save a file.
It's just XnView which does it not.
The problem did not exist prior to September. But I don't know what may have caused it to appear since I did not change anything knowingly in my system.
Has anybody an idea?

I found why XnView does not change date/time when saving:
The "Save - KeepOrgDate" flag was set to 1.
Setting it to 0 solved the problem.
I don't know how this flag could have been set to 1. I didn't do it.
(N.B. I keep the settings in the registry)

I tried to change the flag via the OPTIONS panel in XnView:
Options - General - File Operations - "Keep date/time for saving"
But this affects only "File - KeepDate" but not "Save - KeepOrgDate".
What is it that changes the "Save - KeepOrgDate" flag?
