Hi,

I have just installed for the first time XnShell extension on Win7 64 bits.
And I discovered that language change do not work in this version (4.0 64 bits.)

Actually, this is due to the fact that HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\XnView\ShellEx\language is not correctly set, but contains extra characters (most often two chars, sometimes more) after language code.
If I update manually the entry (with Regedit) to a correct value (eg. "fr"), it works fine.

But registry entry is overwritten each time any option is changed... and then require to be re-set manually at each time with Regedit.

i tried also to disinstall all xn software + vcredist_x64 and reboot any time. reinstall all and rebot but don't work. i think that there is some of my software that caused an incompatibility.
Same thing?
After i tried also a register with bat file.
you need to run the .bat with admin rights
yes, i launch all with admin rights but an all 3 pc doesn't work.
when i click on xnview option from right click the preview of the file don't appear.
:idea:

last question. usually it is possible install only xnview shell or it need xnview classic?

In your video, why there is a blank area above XnShell item menu?

Re: XnView Shell Extension

Hello and Thank you for your great programs (xnviewMP is amazing)

I have used the shell extension back in xp and win7 with success - but nothing I tried gets it to work on Win10 (1709).

I've tried all sorts (I know my way around windows) - including latest version, MS runtimes, admin, ownership, install vs zip, registry etc

The context menu does appear but nothing happens when choosing an action (any). If i edit the registry I can change the appearance of the menu
(as when going into options) - which means the shell does read and load the registry settings - but that is the only sign of life.

If anyone can help I would be very grateful - Thanks
