Irfanview 4.50 & Plugin FORMATS.DLL loading error

Submitted by Ness on October 27, 2017 - 1:55pm

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 nor on the Irfanview sites.)

Thanks for your suggestions!

OS: Windows 10/x64.

Inkscape not updating

Submitted by jojothehobo on September 8, 2017 - 5:00pm

When I open my portableapps platform I get a notice that there is an update for Inkscape. I then click on the update button. The other updates go just fine. Inkscape doesn't. I get the message below.

Unable to download the file. This could be due to a proxy or other network issue....
