Can't open WebP from Windows 7 Explorer

Post by Squirrelly »

Windows 7, XnView Classic 2.50.4. XnView is set as the program to handle WebP files. Double clicking a webp file in explorer on windows 7 just brings up the XnView browser window and not the image. And just the default folder too, not even the folder the webp image is in. If you browse to the file in the XnView browser it will open the webp file just fine, or even if you drag and drop the file into the open XnView browser window, it will display. All other image types I use open just fine double clicking them from explorer.

On Windows 10 with 2.50 (I haven't updated it yet on that machine) I can open webp from the explorer just fine. So if there is something I might have configured wrong on Win 7 let me know.

Or perhaps related to the issue here?
