I'd just like to get a feel as to how many people use XPreview.

Thanks.

XPreview uses standard windows controls... have you ever experienced that with any other program?

What has been modified in the setup? Just the images? Does this occur with any other setup?

this is the first setup Ive ever done... if you need the file it's in the completed splash screens (or whatever) section in the appropriate sticky thread...

If it installs on winxp x64, only can open the file of the same architecture (64 bits), if i try to load a 32bits file on the xpx64 i get this error

Unfortunately, I have no way to diagnose the issue since I can't get my hands on a copy of Windows XP x64.

Having trouble installing XPreview on XP SP2.

Ran the installer for 1.0.6128 and it installed .NET

Ran through the install but I receive the error

Error reading from file C:\Documents and Settings\Z\Desktop\Setup.msi. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.

I can obviously access it since it is how I initiate the install. I have tried moving the file, downloading a different copy, initiating from Setup.exe, etc.

Could you post an older version, perhaps the original 1.0 so that I have something to fall back on? I used the older version last year and it was wonderful. A bit rough around the edges ( what spawned updates it seems) but it got the job done. Excellent work jcarle!

I'm wondering if it's an issue with the actual setup files are with your configuration...

Yes, it must be my configuration. I suppose there were some permission/ownership issues with the file or directory (.msi files are prone to being difficult when it comes to permissions)

I moved the Setup.exe and Setup.msi files to the root of my systemdrive and it installed without a hitch.

Maybe someone else owns my desktop...

Thanks for the suggestion jcarle.

hey jcarle, **** good job with xpreview. i'm facing the same prob as Jagie Fox. Apart from that it works like a charm. I just have a couple of suggestions to make.

1. Would it possible to indicate the co-ordinates in the status bar as we move the pointer?

2. A list of recently opened files would be useful
