I already did that search, there are multiple solutions to the same problem for different versions.
I think MS solved the DLL Hell problem with Side By Side - see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa376307.aspx
. If developers (including MS) used it then I'd only have one copy of each version of this DLL that's needed.
I doubt that SxS has a role to play in this instance, as far as I can tell, out there in the wild there's only one version of this DLL running around, so it could be probably be dropped straight into the windows/System32 directory.
I copied the DLL from my Genie Backup program folder into the XNView 1.96 beta folder, the error no longer manifests, now I have 6 copies of the same thing. But at least I don't have .NET 3.5 as one poster suggested.
This appears to be a recurrent XNView product packaging issue.
