XnView is a great shell for Windows explorer allowing users to preview and perform operations within Windows explore context menu. However on my computer it keeps on popping up an error as shown below. The error code is 1157. Any ideas?
Unable to register the DLL/OCX:LoadLibrary failed;code 1157
Error Code: 1157
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
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.
