In general x32 software can be run on x64 operating systems, but can only interface with x32 add-ons and plug-ins.

For example, to view PDF files, the x32 Ghostscript version is required even on an x64 operating system.

You ran the gs64-bit installer without any error messages or unusual prompts, and xnviewmp-64 doesn't open PDF files?

When you try to open a PDF, do you see a message about the need to install Ghostscript? [Added to recent versions of XnView MP.]

Running the installer should configure the software correctly, no other action should be required, except to increase the DPI value used if necessary...

Otherwise possibly a Windows 10 issue?? [I'm using Linux on my new laptop... :wink: ]
