Thread: Finding the GC dll in a portable Irfanview implementation

  1. #1

    Default Finding the GC dll in a portable Irfanview implementation

    Is there a way to specify the location of the Ghostscript dll in a portable implementation of IrfanView? If not, I would like to suggest it as a feature. I am having trouble viewing eps files. If I set the location manually in a given session it works just fine. However, when I move to another machine it breaks. I don't always have admin rights to install GS (or IrfanView)

    Thanks
    Matt

    Is this what you're looking for?

    No, the problem is the path name technically changes when I change machines so I have to change that custom path each time. If IrfanView could automatically find the dll in its own program directory or plugin directory, that would work. I can copy the dll there.

    Shouldn't the PortableApps.com versions of IrfanView and Ghostscript be able to work together?

    What about providing a relative path like \irfanview\plugins\ ?

    Default

    .\Plugins\gsdll32.dll worked.

    Thank you, I probably should have thought of this...
