XnviewMP starting very slow

Post by crimle » Tue Sep 11, 2018 12:31 pm

I am an enthusiastic Xnview user. I had Xnview installed and now I am trying XnviewMP. The program looks quite good, but there is one issue: the program is starting ver, very slow indeed. I double-click a very small image (jpg, 5 KB) and it will be displayed after ~7 seconds. The old Xnview was much faster. The same image was displayed by Xnview after 1 or 2 seconds.

Kind regards
Christof

It's a known issue, due to the need to load the Qt framework software used, Pierre is checking to see if there is a solution...

Hi, I'm having the same problem, f I run the app it start fast but when I click on a file in explorer then I get a delay in the start of 3 or 4 sec. I noticed this since v0.86, now I'm using v0.92 on Windows 7 64bit and the issue persist.

And if you start XnViewMP, and open your file with File>Recent files, slow too?

Hi Pierre,

No, from file=>recent it open fast, it works slow just when I open a file from the explorer.

And starting XnView MP (in brower mode) takes 3/4 sec?
do you have a lot of files in the folder?

The program starts relatively fast (less than 2 sec) no matter how much files are in the starting folder BUT when it start in browser mode the main pane (the one with the thumbnails) appears always empty, I've to press enter so the program proceed to scan the folder (this could be another bug)

Do you have always old version like 0.84 to test?

Please check settings>General>Startup
