Where is the MP INI file?

Postby JohnFredC » Thu Jun 05, 2008 8:00 pm

XnView MP doesn't save settings on my system, reverting to the defaults each time.

The settings are saved in the Windows registry:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\XnView\XnViewQT

I knew they had to be somewhere! :)

Here's hoping they don't stay in the registry...

:) Hello !

• Nope ! Nothing in the registry here ! Moreover, saving the settings in the registry is a pain in the neck.

Whenever I install a new program and/or run it for the first time, I'm monitoring all changes made to the system (Windows 2K).

XnView MP alpha 0.001 created the following registry keys:
  • HKCU\Software\XnView\XnViewQT\Browser\
  • HKCU\Software\XnView\XnViewQT\Load\
  • HKCU\Software\XnView\XnViewQT\Start\
Besides creating the file XnView2.db in my %AppData% folder, alpha 0.005 added these entries:
  • HKCU\Software\XnView\XnViewQT\FilterView\
  • HKCU\Software\XnView\XnViewQT\Save\
  • HKCU\Software\XnView\XnViewQT\Viewer\

This is normal for an alpha project, but I think the .ini file should come back in a near future (as option or default like before).

:) Hi !

• Sorry, here under XP-Pro SP1 (SP3 @ Paul's), the alpha 0.001 created nothing in the registry (and it crashed continually),
and the current one didn't either…
- Performing a Search with Regedit, …\XnViewQT is nowhere to be found. No setting is saved.
Here, the path is :
E:\XnV_MP\xnview.exe
It has nothing to do with the one you show in the registry.
- I have several other versions installed, each has a key (I wrote and added myself), so …

Hi Clo...

Not in my registry, either. That explains why no options persist between sessions.

Correct. Used a tool to search registry for XnViewQT. Not found.

The only thing XnView MP remembers is that I use layout 7. Nothing else.

Weird, huh?
