Just a wild guess as I'm running out of ideas. I don't really think it's the culprit.

yes wild guess is a keyword here :( I'd really like to know what is happening.

Re: [LONG] XnView Bug or not? Help to find a problem source.

I've got to get out for work, i cannot do much more right now. However i've attached (for whatever is worth) a copy of the handles and the DLLS called when it is working and when it has crashed, since i can now reliably start it after it crashes. i should get some better debug tools but for now this...

Re: [LONG] XnView Bug or not? Help to find a problem source.

Dammit, my copy of Detour is too old. It does not work with current systems. Or... well... it does work, it just does not show anything unless the app is 32 bits...

Re: [LONG] XnView Bug or not? Help to find a problem source.

Ok, so now it's personal . It worked for how long? 7 whole days... and now it does hang each time. It's still network related. But, strangely enough i found a "vodoo solution" to make it work. Every. Single. Time. No more messing around at random. And this "vodoo solution" is sim...

Re: Image Upscaling And Downscaling Algorithms

As for using different upscale and downscale the "least amount of work" would be to put an "upscale only" and "downscale only" option (i don't remember if it is already there) So if i apply the two filters close together, then the first filter will catch only stuff to ...

Re: Image Upscaling And Downscaling Algorithms

uhm.... i just re-read. If i have a filter that does "upscale with pixel scaling" theni apply the "resize" filter, then i'm "wasting" a lot of CPU time upscaling 90% (2700) of the pictures that need not be upscaled (or at least not that much). Also keep in mind that whi...

Re: Image Upscaling And Downscaling Algorythms

Related: Upscaling / Enlarging Should have thought it could not be that "original" as an idea. But yes, since this is a batch scale image converter, so offering options to use a different algorithm to upscale and yet another more CPU-intensive one for very drastic upscaling (2x or more, w...

Image Upscaling And Downscaling Algorithms

May i propose a weird idea? Let's say a person wants to have all the images in a folder oround the same size, while still respecting proportions. Would it be possible to allow to choose different algorythms for upscaling and downscaling depending on what it is encountered? And also: if the image is ...

Re: [LONG] XnView Bug or not? Help to find a problem source.

But yes... understanding also why your program is basically the only one to give me problem might be something to investigate. Could you please tell us the Knowledge Base and/or Security Bulletin number of the update you're referring to? The only update that got installed after each time i rolled b...

Re: [LONG] XnView Bug or not? Help to find a problem source.

Okay. Microsoft has definitively gone over the line. You know the update i was referring to? It is not marked as a driver update. But it is a driver update. - I uninstall the driver. Windows driver version becomes the "cannot uninstall" standard one for that driver. - I install the driver ...

Re: [LONG] XnView Bug or not? Help to find a problem source.

Uhm... that could indeed be a possibility... i do have a very stringent firewall... i'll check it out. In order to “harden” my system, I set up my firewall in a way that allows me to grant access “per application“. Even some services can't connect to the network, and IE is in “Work Offline” mode. S...

Re: [LONG] XnView Bug or not? Help to find a problem source.

Though... knowing windows...

It's probably the fact that now you cannot disable anymore windows defender and windows firewall and that is what it is making problems.
