    Unhappy IrfanView crashes when opening some PDF files

    IrfanView crashes when opening some PDF files.
    I often browse among my png screen shots and suddenly there is a PDF which IrfanView tries to open - and crashes.

    I can send a sample PDF if needed.

    IrfanView version 4.41, 64-bit.

    The latest version is 4.42. I suggest upgrading IrfanView and its plugins. Also tell us your plugin settings for PDF files.

    I can browse through an entire folder of PDF files using IrfanView without any issues.

    If it still crashes for you after upgrading and updating the plugins, then we will need a PDF file that makes your copy crash.

    I have now upgraded to IrfanView version 4.42 - 64-bit plus the latest plugins, including 'PDF.DLL' v4.42.
    It still crashes. Most PDFs can be opened but not all.

    How can I attach or send you the PDF?

    Go Advanced, and attach the file. PDF files are limited to 1.91 Mbytes. If it's more than that, upload it to Wikisend or DropBox and post a link.

    I get the same crash with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

    I forwarded the file to Irfan Skiljan.

    The crash is caused by the new PDF plugin.

    If you have the Ghostscript plugin installed, you can disable the PDF plugin, and use that instead. I don't have Ghostscript installed here, so that just generates an error.

    Irfan will contact the plugin's author.
