Microsoft reporting new version, with incorrect link

Post by foxyshadis » Sun Oct 21, 2012 5:16 am

MP's been crashing on me a lot, unfortunately, and when I went into action center tonight I saw this:

Which links to perso.orange.fr/pierre.g/xnview/endownload.html, which links back to some search engine page. Obviously, not to a new version. I think someone might have hijacked your software's account with Microsoft in the name of ad revenue.

Following Wanadoo's merger with Orange, users' homepages were redirected (from perso.wanadoo.fr to perso.orange.fr) and eventually purged (think GeoCities) :-|

While the XnView Help Guide (courtesy of our pal Claude “Clo” Charries) is still up & running on pagesperso-orange.fr, Pierre's old site now defaults to a 404 search page on the Voila.fr portal (which is also part of France Télécom's Orange brand).

A newer version of Xnview is available for download that might solve this problem. Xnview recommends updating to the latest version of Xnview to take advantage of security and stability improvements.
