    Unhappy Installation of IrfanView V4.25 in Windows 7

    Since I've been using Irfanview for years, my heart sank when I tried to install v4.25 in Windows 7 and recieved this error:


    C:\...........\IrfanView 4.25\iview425_setup.exe is not a valid Win32 application.


    I hope there is a fix for this. Please help!

    Welcome to the Forum, michaeljamesmiller. We have a few Windows 7 Users here in the Forum and none of them have reported your error though!

    The message you're getting ('...not a valid Win32 application...') is typical when you have a corrupted/ incomplete Setup File. I ran IrfanView 4.25 for many months on Windows 7 RC (Ultimate) and it not only ran without a single crash, it was also noticeably faster than on Win XPP!

    Try

    1. Downloading from a different location (from the list on IrfanView Website)
    2. Using your old setup file to install on a different machine running WinXP/ Vista

    Best of Luck!

    Hi michaeljamesmiller,

    WellOiledPC has right!
    Try another download location!

    Personally I always use the download location of the university of Vienna!
    (Irfan is an graduate of the Vienna University of Technology and so it looks very official.)

    http://www.irfanview.com/
    http://www.irfanview.com/main_download_engl.htm
    Scroll down and select Other download sites (Mirrors)!
    And then scroll down again and choose the english version!
