ATM, I have no suggestions for a good window title, so your suggestions are most welcome.
Configuration Wizard” seems to be a commonly used term (e.g. Apache Triplesec First Start Configuration Wizard).

* LIBPNG 1.2.24

* XnViewShellEx must be in ShellEx subfolder
The shell extension is included in the complete version of the ZIP package (XnView-win-full.zip). When the archive is extracted, XnViewShellExt.dll does not end up in its own sub-directory (XnView\ShellEx\), but in the same folder as xnview.exe. Hence, the user cannot activate the Use XnView Shell Extension option on the configuration screen:

    Currently, the window opens up and you don't know which application this window belongs to (XnView is not visible in background, yet).

    So I suggest:
    The window title of the dialog should contain "XnView". E.g. "XnView - Configuration wizard".
