Anytime XnViewMP starts up, it now takes a long time to startup. It used to be near instant. It doesn't matter which mode it starts up in, it takes a long time.

I don't currently have a previous version. Is there a previous version you would like me to test?

To test, I uninstalled the latest XnViewMP x64 version from my machine and installed "XnViewMP-084-win-x64.exe" from your old_versions list.

The 084 version opens instantly, as it used to. I can double-click photos in Windows Explorer and XnView will open right away.

I then uninstalled the 084 version and reinstalled the current version. XnView startup went back to very slow, about 8 seconds.

And 0.86? 8sec by starting in browser mode? What do you use in Settings>General>Startup>Mode when...? Do you use Read ahead & Cache behind?

Yes, XnViewMP 0.86 and also 0.87. Settings>General>Startup>Mode is "Normal." I'm not aware of any "read ahead/cache behind" settings that have been set.

Yes 0.85 also has the issue. Going backwards, 0.84 is the latest version that does not start up slowly.

Windows 10 Professional.

I can confirm, XNView MP takes like, 10 seconds to open any file when double clicking from Explorer (in my case, I use Directory Opus File Manager).

Solution:
I downgraded from Version 0.88 to 0.85, and the problem resolved itself immediately. XNViewMP now opens up lightning fast. I made sure to use Revo Uninstaller to delete leftover files and registry entries before installing the older version.

I'm using Windows 10 Pro 64bit, Fall Creators Update (the newest one as of like, September or November 2017).
