color fault in preview of Sony ARW files since version 2.44

Post by stargazer7 »

Hello,
since version 2.44 there is a color fault in preview of Sony RAW files (.ARW), see attached screenshot.
Current version 2.45 is also affected, but it worked up to version 2.43.
Only the preview is affected, if I open the photo the colors are normal.
It is independent from any xnview.ini settings.
I extracted the embedded preview image in ARW file using "exiftool -b -PreviewImage file.arw > file.jpg" and the generated JPG shows correct colors in preview.
All my Sony ARW files are affected, but no other RAW files (I only have access to Panasonic files).
If necessary I can provide ARW files.
