XnView Classic 2.46 and Windows XP

Post by Dave-H » Mon Sep 10, 2018 10:28 pm

I've just done the recommended update from 2.43 to 2.46 on my machines, and on my old XP machine when I run the program I'm now getting a popup which says "The procedure entry point InitializeCriticalSectionEx could not be found in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll".
If I dismiss the message, XnView then appears to run and function absoluely fine!
Anyone know why I'm seeing this message?
Is it actually from one of the plugins that's no longer compatible with XP, as presumably XnView itself still is?!
Thanks, Dave.

Please try removing libwebp.dll from the Plugins sub-directory of your XnView installation, Dave.

The solution is very good.(I have the same problem)
Thanks a lot.
XP is old, but some old PCs only run XP. 8)
