I just tried in a brand new installation in virtualbox (Win10 1809 RS5 october update).

as a try i just unpacked the zip to the desktop, run the register.bat and tried rotating an image - it worked.

when i tried previously (1709), i could not get the register.bat to work - with an error message about failed call to RegSvr32 - I registered it manually which did work.

one more thing, i'm also running filemenutools, a context menu application (a must have) - but i never had conflicts with it..

will continue exploring - thanks Pierre

Ok, i clean installed windows 10 1809 (x64) on my main pc (can you believe i did all this just for xnview shell!) :shock: :)

strangely it still did not work. then i deleted the registry key and right clicked again - this time the menu worked. however it is not consistent: If i R-click on a JPG some items will work and some won't:

convert into = ok (any format)
convert... = not working (works for other formats)
resize = not working (works for other formats)
rotate = not working (works for other formats)
options = not working (works for other formats)

so, not sure what is going on here but hope it may help

Hi! Thanks for an awesome little program. It's one of the first things I install after reinstalling Windows. ;)

I was wondering, what are the chances of XnShell supporting SVGs?
