0.92: XnViewMP not showing webp images when opened from Windows Explorer

XnView: MP 0.92 - 64 bit
OS: Windows 10 64bit

If I try opening a webp file from with Windows Explorer, XnViewMP will open up with a blank view and no image. However if I use the XnViewMP browser, I can go to the webp file and it will open just fine that way.

Effect: image not shown

To reproduce:
1. Set XnViewMP as default application for webp files
2. Open Windows Explorer and open a webp file

Actual behaviour (bug): XnViewMP opens but doesn't show the image

Expected behaviour: XnViewMP should show the image

How do I check the registry association? I already tried settings another app as default and then changing back to XnViewMP but it didn't help.

Also I tried deleting my config files so XnViewMP would be at default settings but that didn't help either.

Thankfully .webp files are not extremely common so this isn't a huge deal for me.

if you drag&drop a .webp on XnView MP's icon, it works?

Yes if I drag and drop a webp file onto the XnViewMP window or shortcut then it opens fine.

I'm having the same issue (MP 0.92 & 0.93) it can open .webp from xnview browser and has thumbnails, but can't from double clicking the files in windows explorer (it just opens the xnview browser in default folder).

btw how to add webp thumbnails to windows explorer?

I'm not sure what am I looking for in there, give me an example of how should it look like and which key to look for or maybe as a .reg file.
the files do claim to be associated with xnviemp in their info window.

I have the same problem since 2-3 weeks ago. The entry in registry is correct.
