XnView Shell Extension Shows Error


Dear Russell, it seems like the problem is with the DLL file that was supposed to be used by the Windows Explorer for running the shell command.

It is possible that DLL files doesn’t get registered properly while the installation. Though they are not registered, the installation completes and starts giving error.

Run the following command if the setup is completed:

cd /d C:XnViewShellEx

regsvr32 XnViewShellExt.dll

This should register the DLL file in the registry and run your application properly.

Also, download the latest version. This should also solve your issue.

Enjoy XnView.
