XnView MP 0.92 32-bit install issue

Post by jonha4711 » Sat Sep 22, 2018 12:13 pm

I downloaded the recent Windows 32-bit .92 version of XnView MP (after abstaining from .91 because XnView MP has a history of bungled updates)... and it doesn't work. It doesn't even start: the xnviewmp.exe instead complains about a missing vcruntime140.dll.

Not good. But OK, so I google and it seems I need another MS VC runtime. I locate that, download it and try to install... to be greeted by the message that VC redist can't be installed because of an "unspecified error" (I am not making this up).

It seems to be too difficult for the developer to create something, either on Windows or on Linux, that simply runs out of the box (this is 2018, after all). Others can, he can't or is unwilling to do.

Well, I will continue with .90 for the immediate future but I think that's it for XnView, just too much trouble with it over the years.
