XnView and X-Win32

Post by Erez »

Hi,

Seems like XnView cannot open when X-Win32 is running on my desktop. Also, if XnView is open when X-Win32 is started, both applications crash.
Is there a solution for this?

What is X-Win32? It it this http://www.starnet.com/products/xwin32/

If it is, I highly doubt that this problem haves nothing to do with XnView so I would recommend that you get in touch with X-Win32 authors. :)

Yes, this is the program.
I'd happily blame X-Win32, however this behavior occurs only with XnView (no other applications on my system have any problems with it) and it's very consistent...
Is it possible that as a multi-platform application, XnView has some code for X-Windows (for the sake of the various UNIX builds), and in the Windows version it doesn't work well with the X server?

No, there is nothing about X server in windows version...

I can confirm that the exact same thing happens here on two different computers. I have updated to the latest XnView 1.91 an I'm using X-Win32 5.0.2 build 1.

Has there been any solution found in the meantime?

BTW: Thanks for your great free software!

It's been a while since I used X-Win32. When I needed an X server more recently, I installed Xming - and that gets along with XNView just fine. Might be worth a shot.
