XnView Shell Extension v4.0 is available

- full unicode support
Clicking on the image preview just open XnView not the image, going back to v3.60 fixed the problem
Works for me with "To open picture, use" set to "Associated Program" and I only recently switched back to XnView Classic from XnViewMP
Win10 Pro x64 RS4 1803, Malwarebytes Premium, Process Lasso Pro
XnView Classic and PhotoFiltre Studio X

Hello,

I was using XnView Shell Extension version 3.5.1, unregistered it, downloaded the new version (XnShellEx64.zip), replaced the files, registered it and it worked. So far so good. I noticed that in 'Options' - 'Displayed Menu items' there was a change - 'File's icon' was replaced with 'Resize', so I enabled it. 'Resize' appeared in Windows shell but the drop-down menu did not work:

Compare it with for example 'Rotate', showing drop-down menu just right:

Am I missing something or this is a bug?

By the way I could not find the change log for the latest version which I am not sure whether it is 4.0.0 as shown in 'About' or 4.0.1 (file version shown as 4.0.1.0).

Regards

Thank you very much, I re-downloaded it and 'Resize' drop-down menu is shown properly:

Indeed the file 'XnViewShellExt-Resize.txt' was missing in the previous archive.

Program solved, thanks for the quick fix!
