0.91 Beta 2: Can't view AI/PDF files even with Ghostscript 8.54 installed

Hi,

I'd appreciate help.

XnView 0.91 Beta 2 (x64 portable) is showing the following message for AI/PDF files:

xnviewmp_2018-07-12_21-24-34.png
xnviewmp_2018-07-12_21-24-34.png (6.82 KiB) Viewed 335 times

Since I have installed in my system Ghostscript 8.54 x64, I was expecting XnView could view those files.

Is there any additional setting to tweak? Would the issue relate to the portable version I'm using? Is there any requirement on Ghostscript version to be installed?

Thanks for assistance!
Carlos

If Ghostscript 64-bit is installed on the computer on which you are running 0.91 Beta 2, you should be able to view those files immediately, as far as I know...

Are you able to test with 0.90 64-bit ZIP version, or another portable version to try to isolate the problem?

Thanks for replying!

After updating Ghostscript to version 9.23 for Windows (64 bit) XnView 0.91 Beta 2 (and 0.90) started to work properly.

The problem was the Ghostscript v8.54 installed previously.

Best,
Carlos

Was it definitely the 64-bit version, not 32-bit?

The problem was the old Ghostscript v8.54 (64-bit) definitely.
When upgraded to Ghostscript v9.23 (64 bit) XnView worked properly.
