Irfanview And Xp

Recommended Posts

One of the folks in my gardening forum claims Irfanview will not work with XP. She claims when she attempted to use it with XP it gave a "fatal error" message.

 

Has anyone else heard this? I use it a lot in 98 but will be changing to XP within a few weeks. I'd really miss Irfanview - it's such a good program.

 

Any informaiton would be greatly appreciated.

I tried it on XP and it worked well. However I didn´t like Irfanview so I deleted it. :eek:

But it works. :eek:

Beth, I use it for my main image viewing program and I have been on XP for a while. It works fine.

 

Have them uninstall it and re-download and install it again. Sounds like it may be a bad install.

Beth, they just released a new version, 3.97.

 

I'm running 3.80 on XP and haven't had a problem

I always load the new version as soon as I hear that it's out. 3.97 works fine on XP.

:) Just in case anyone is interested in a bit of IrfanView trivia, the program actually generates quite a bit of traffic to TCH. If you try to play a movie file using IrfanView but don't have the right codec installed, IrfanView refers to you www.fourcc.org which is a site I host on TCH which offers information on PC video software.

 

I moved to TCH specifically to keep this site up and running since my previous host crashed often resulting in a lot of irate email from IrfanView users. ;)

Personally I use the k-lite mega codec pack for all my audio/video codecs. If anybody s having problems with Irfanview there is an almost identical program called XN View - xnview.com

Greg, you can go to the IrfanView site and select the History link to see what's changed since 3.70 which is quite a bit.

 

Thanks Bruce,

 

Will take a look. For me, it'll be like teaching an old dog new tricks. ;)
