Some recent plugins for IrfanView 4.54-32bit no longer work under XP,
specifically WebP.dll 4.54-32bit...:-(

IrfanView's developer Irfan Skiljan kindly suggested a workaround for the broken webP.dll Plugin under Win XP :

IrfanView 4.54
+ webP.dll 4.51 Plugin (Link date 20/02/2018; Size 204,288 bytes)
+ Win XP
= eternal bliss...;-)

Many plugins were also updated in this version, so IrfanView recommends updating them if you update IrfanView itself.

MSVCR71.DLL MSVCP71.DLL are no longer dependencies
only `msvcp110_win.dll` but it's lazy loaded

I use it since W98. Very easy copy/paste/crop/resize/scan/print/sharpness and many other things.
Dont have a pen/filler. Not a full img editor but very easy and has many options.
Fully work is done with xnview, mspaint(for pen) and PaintDotNet for layers.(except for the layers that xnview does not have, everything is easier with xnview)

JudyGarland on 2020-10-22 05:38

XnView is not Windows XP compatible anymore. In order to make it work with XP, replace libwebp.dll (plugin folder) with with webp.dll (xnview.com/download/plugins/webp.zip).
cheers

@xor: must be related to your system. I'm using the newest version on Win 8.1 x64 and just tested all renaming methods - no problems, no delay. All other functions work as well fast and flawless.

Midas on 2018-07-30 07:29

FYI, older versions still available, check forum topic.

g3ose on 2019-04-17 18:14

it is version 7.0 right now, is portable and free
great viewer, fast and lite. some good lossless transformations
use it as is, support is dead.
take care, thumbnail database is not big enough, optimisation of thumbnail database will clear most thumbs. resizing thumbnails will clear all database so using Tag section is completly useless. (tags are saved on thumbnail database)
Still one of top 3 in my image viewers.
it use SageThumbs https://sourceforge.net/projects/sagethumbs/
to manage .eps files

The Ars Technica article posted by smaragdus above is great reading. Thanks. I was once an eager user of the free Winamp, so I have signed the petition...
