Irfanview 4.50 & Plugin FORMATS.DLL loading error

Hello all,

Updated to Irfanview 4.50 (from 4.44, I think) through the platform.

Now when I try to open a Sony ARW (raw) image file, I get an error message: "Decode error. Can't load plugin FORMATS.DLL." Updated the plugins with the updater from the Irfanview site, which changed nothing.

So questions:
– is there a workaround?
– how to downgrade to the preceding version? (Couldn't find it on the Portableapps.com nor on the Irfanview sites.)

Thanks for your suggestions!

OS: Windows 10/x64.

Plugins

To add/update plugins, download the plugins package also on the IrfanView Portable homepage: https://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_pictures/irfanview_portable

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Thanks a lot, that worked

Thanks a lot, that worked (should have seen that link by myself…)! Smiling

Sorry for the delay, just had to reset Windows after the latest update. Sad

(For some inscrutable reason "Thanks a lot, that worked" appears doubled in the preview. If it persists in the post, take _two_ thanks.)

Subject line

The subject line and the first sentence of your post both include "Thanks a lot, that worked".

Either you wrote it in both places, or you didn't write a subject, and the first line was used as the subject automatically.
