DLL problem

Post by Stirlitz »

I had the stupidity to update XNView into the existing folder without copying it first as a back-up. Since then I am struggling with various error messages. First libwebp.dll is giving me headache. I simply removed it. Then LIBEAY32.dll. Then ws2_32.dll. Then kernel32.dll. I have downloaded portable, setup, etc. I guess the problem is that I still run Windows XP. Now I am trying to remember which XNView version ran smooth for me and find it online. I think it was 2.40. Or 1.70? I have a terrible memory. Is there a folder where I can download older versions? It is pain in the neck to search for them in various web sites online. There must be an archive here.

Application couldn’t start because libeay32.dll was not found. This is what I get when I try to crop an image for the first time. I just press ok and everything works, and the message does not pop up again until I close XNView down and run it anew. I put libeay32.dll into the program’s folder but it did not help. I tried to run regsvr32.exe "C:\Program Files\Graphics\XnView\libeay32.dll" but it says the library was loaded but it was not possible to locate the entry point for DLLRegisterServer, so it cannot be registered.

How do I get rid of that message? Especially as it does not matter at all. Everything works fine. It is just an annoying message like a nag screen...

I had the latest version 2.50.4.

But I was able to find version 2.00 of 2013 and now I am fine, no error messages. In fact, it even works faster than newer versions.

Hm.... libeay32.dll is getting on my nerves again. I don’t understand the logic. Now it pops up, now it doesn’t... When I try to crop a message, it says something like "the application failed to start because libeay32.dll was not found. Please reinstall the application". Yet I press OK and nothing happens, everything works as usual except for this nag screen. Can you rid me thereof?

The libeay32.dll I have is version 1.0.2l of 2017.07.13. I have also tried 1.0.2a of 2016.08.11 with the same result.

OK, I think I found something. It is not just crop. Whenever I press Shift at XNView, it gives me this message.

I feel so. At least when I Alt+C to copy an image somewhere. 2.50 would freeze for a minute when expanding folders. 2.00 does not seem to freeze. But I cannot say for sure.
even with 2.00 version?
Yes. It looks like the problem lies with the Shift button. When I crop from the menu, no popups. If I just press Shift and nothing else, I still get this nag message. But only once per session, until I close down and run XNView again.
