    Default how start irfanview and automatically open first file with unknown name

    Dear Community,

    How can I start irfanView in a script and tell him to open the first file in the directory. I don't know the filenames.
    I tried things like this:

    "C:\Program Files\IrfanView\i_view64.exe" "C:\Users\user1\directory_with_file\%1%"


    I'm grateful for any help, hannes

    This works for me:

    "C:\Program Files\IrfanView\i_view32.exe" "C:\Users\user1\directory_with_file"

    (I'm using 32bit, but that shouldn't make a difference)

    many thanks to you, johannes
