Hi Zorro. PhotoDemon developer here. PD shouldn't have any new dependencies between v7 and v8. (In fact, its system dependencies haven't really changed since the Windows XP era!)

If the app was working for you in the past but it doesn't now, please get in touch so I can investigate. Contact info here: https://photodemon.org/about/contact/

No .NET libraries are required by PD or any of the 3rd-party libraries it uses, but like all Windows apps, it does require *some* system libraries to be present. This includes the VB runtimes built into Windows 8.1 and 10 (full list here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/visualstudio/visual-basic-6/visual-basic-6-support-policy#runtime-definition). If a determined user manually removes those libraries, PD is unlikely to run. I'm afraid I don't have a way to prevent this. :(

Thank you in advance for any follow-up information you can provide. I no longer have a Windows 8.1 system available for testing, but if I've somehow broken PD on it, I'd love to fix it as quickly as I can.

Hi PhotoDemon ;-) - just wanted to send you a screenshot of the message appearing when I try to start the program... but PhotoDemon updated itsself and now the problem is gone. Means version 8.2 is working like a charm (and like old version 7.0) on my machine. Thanks for so much backwards-compatibility!

Thank you so much for the follow-up, Zorro! My favorite bugs are the ones that fix themselves. :D

It's the best image viewer I've ever used. Awesome UI and hotkeys, fast; everything I wanted in an image viewer. Near perfect.

Ignore my previous comment. I am an idiot. It actually uses an old version of Sumatra, which was faster and lighter.

@ripu: you shouldn't be so hard on yourself, mistakes happen. :)
