Yes, at least in most respects:

o Download the ZIP version;

o Extract, then locate the xnview.exe file;

o Create a shortcut to xnview.exe to launch the program;

o In Tools > Settings... > Integration set all paths to Program (XnView).

One limitation:

Opening PDF (and PS) files requires Ghostscript installed on the computer used, as Ghostscript can't be portable.
