small bug in nconvert x64

Post by unquestioned2 » Mon Oct 15, 2012 5:27 am

The 32-bit variant of nconvert works without any problems with this command line:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\XnView\nconvert_x86" -out jxr -o C:\Users\%%.jxr C:\AMD\*.png

Do I the same with the 64-bit variant of nconvert that happens:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\XnView\nconvert_x64" -out jxr -o C:\Users\%%.jxr C:\AMD\*.png
Ignoring -p option from command line

64-bit nconvert makes it's job too, but it gives an error message
for an error which doesn't exist. - Please correct this!

C:\Program Files (x86) is normally for 32-bit programs and C:\Program Files for 64-bit programs...

Is your copy of nconvert_x64 installed in Program Files (x86) or Program Files?

In Program Files (x86).

There is no 64-bit variant of XnView (yet).
And because it's related, I store the nconvert-executables in the XnView-folder.
(And I renamed them to avoid to confuse them (or to have to copy and delete them again and again).)

this error message:
Ignoring -p option from command line

As you can see, I didn't use any -p option:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\XnView\nconvert_x64" -out jxr -o C:\Users\%%.jxr C:\AMD\*.png

After a while I figured out how you ment it probably (without your new comment).
(Because I guessed than that you know your source code that well.)

So the mistake in the source code is not in the XnView-SourceCode,
instead of this it's in the (x64) source code of the JpegXR-codec.
Question is: Are you able to correct this? Or don't you have access
to that source code and instead of this, you use some precompiled libraries?

(In the 32-bit variant of NConvert this problem doesn't exists,
but on a 64-bit-cpu it's slower than NConvert-x64.
That's the reason why I use it.)

So at least it wasn't a hallucination or something like this
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=662KGcqjT5Q#t=1m38s
where people see a pink elephant with yellow dots
during a traffic check and have to take an alcohol test.
(I hope the link with the time index works and you like it.)

I don't see the string in ... :shock:

AFAIK all (?) the plugins are precompiled by 3rd party, and most of them have problematic licenses (latter except WebP).
There is indeed no WinZIP under my rock.
