XnViewMP How to install the beta?

Post by mrwul » Tue Aug 14, 2018 12:55 pm

Sorry ... dumb question ...
I never used beta versions of XnViewMP.

Have downloaded v.0.91 beta just now (zip), but any suggestion as to how I should install it?

Thanks!

Sorry, I meant Windows.

I have unzipped the Windows beta .zip file. But now what?
If I copy all the files over the existing XnViewMP files, I guess my settings are gone, right?

Eh.... just to make sure ...
the .zip file is unzipped in D:\Downloads
the installed version is located in D:\XnViewMP-x64

If I run XnViewMP.exe in D:\Downloads, will it then use the settings of XnViewMP from D:\XnViewMP-x64 ?
