Problem Opening bmf File – Please Help

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -

Hi friends,

I have recently installed the game "attack on pearl harbor" on my system. The problem is that I want to view some of the bit map files (.bmf). Someone suggested me to use XnView to view my bmf directories.

I installed the software successfully but when I wanted to open the file with this software, an error popped up on the screen. The screenshot of the error is as follows:

Display of less common format


Format of the <bullet.bmf> could not determined

For display of less common format, the following option is available

   Options>General>[x]Display all image file types


Display all image file types

I have tried to settle this down by changing different settings but still the error appears.

Can anyone tell me please why this error is coming up. Where am I making a mistake?

Your help is required in solving the issue.

Looking forward to your views

Kind regards

The problem here is about wrong entry in your registry. You will experience this problem in older version. But I think it is already fixed in xnview  1.93.6.  So re-installing the problem with the same version will not fix the problem. If you are going to re-install, it is better to use the new version. If you still want to use the old version and want to fix the problem, here is the solution.  

Go to this registry.

"C:Program FilesXnViewxnview.exe" -slide "%1"

Delete the “slide” word. The correct is this one

"C:Program FilesXnViewxnview.exe" "%1"

Note: Just keep your program path. Don’t change it.

Good luck.
