Opening large files progress bar or start app before reading file

Post by FKCapitalism »

If i open Tiff or HDR or EXR file that is 250-500MB size i have to wait 10 seconds (It can take even longer if disk is used by another process ) after double clicking the file inside windows explorer i dont see any progress, XnView interface opens only after it reads the file from disk.

Meanwhile i don't know if i pressed properly so i end up clicking file inside windows explorer again. This opens second instance of XnView MP despite that I have set XnView to single instance (i see inside task manager second process XnView launches) when interface opens it hangs up and application has to be stopped with task manager. (BUG)

Ideally like to see progress bar or open main window instantly upon double clicking file in windows explorer.
