.exe and .zip contents for XnView and XnConvert always differs

Post by forklab »

Not a bug of XnView as it sounds but a /bugs/ in distributing packages.

It's a long age story.
Contents of installers and zips for both products, XnView and XnConvert, always differs.
For example, zip's have much more files than installers, XnViewMp zip have qtquickcontrolsplugin.dll in qml/QtQuick/Contols directory, but installer have this file in pluginsqml/QtQuick/Controls and I have no idea if this plugin is ever works/used in any of the "versions", zip or installer.
Cross-compare with XnView and XnConvert shows almost the same, but much more - XnConvert some files are outdated compared to XnViewMP files. And so on.

Looks like archives and installers are created from different sources or with different scripts.
