"Create error" whenever converting images

Post by chescogala »

Hi, I just downloadead the app for Windows 11, and I get the "create error" whenever I try to convert an image of any format to any other format, I've tried with all types of inputs and outputs and nothing works. I attached the image with the error below and my settings.

Welcome to the XnView forum, chescogala, and thank you for your request. From what I can see you use "XnConvert". XnConvert is for batch conversions and files are read, converted and saved. When saving, new files are created (written) by XnConvert. "Create error" looks much like a problem with the rights. Does XnConvert have enough rights to write in to the target / output directory?

Are you running XnConvert as an Administrator?

If so, you might try different conversions in case the issue relates in some way to outputting to PNGs, or some such specific setting issue.

I've run the program as admin, and tried with many different types of file formats and none work
