Save INI in XnView Folder Doesn't Work

Post by andrewj » Sun May 09, 2010 10:22 am

Dear Pierre,
I can't get the option to save the INI file in the XnView folder to work. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit with my XnViewMP files in "C:\Program Files (x86)\XnViewMP"
Any ideas?
Thanks
Andrew

That's odd. My XnView 1.97 works absoutely fine with the INI in the Program File directory under Windows 7-64. The only thing I did was to tick "Windows Vista" in the compatibilty box for the EXE, and adjust the folder permissions so a normal user can write to it.

XnViewMP doesn't seem to want to work in the same way...

Andrew :(
