Set This as the default program to view gif images. It is written in GDI+, so you can expect the same level functionality as the onw in win XP. As it was written by me, I can taylor it to suit your needs. Source available on request
If I use this program, where will it be installed? Have you implemented some sort of install wizard with it?

Corgano, thank-you for succeeding at what the geniuses at Microsoft Corp. failed at with Windows 7-- the simplicity of playing GIF files. Unfortunately, my AVG Anti-virus keeps telling me that your program is a Trojan Virus, although I haven't noticed any ill effects since using it. Any idea as to why?

No installation is required, as the man said on Page 1. Just select it as the default program to open any GIF file. Save it with the rest of your program files.

This is because I used autoit to make it, giving a false positive. Autoit is a programming language (like C or VB). Although most people use autoit for good, some people use it for bad things. When an antivirus sees something made with autoit that is bad, it is easier to "stereotype" all autoit programs as bad, then to just pick out the bad programs.

What antivirus do you use? To help out everyone who uses autoit, you should notify your antivirus provider that it is falsely detecting autoit exe's as viruses. Most antiviruses have a setting where you can add exceptions, and adding gifview.exe (if that's what I called it) should remove the problem.

Installing question: It requires no installation. If you want to, you could move it to the program files folder, but it's not necessary.

AVG. And, yes, thanx, I already figured out how to add your program as an "exception". I was just curious as to why it thought it was a Virus. Thanx for the reply.

That's odd, I use AVG too, but it does not detect autoit exe's as infected.

Anyone have any feature requests?

Actually, yes. Only glitch I can find with your program is that if the image is too tall, it cuts it off when viewing it. You can only see the bottom part of the image. Perhaps a slide bar would be a good idea? That or an auto size adjust with a zoom option, like most viewers have?

Another really good Free viewer/minor editor is: IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide

Hi corgano.

Thanks for this nice little application.

I got one problem with it, when I click on "Next" or "Previous" I get the following error message:

Name:  screenshot.JPG
Views: 17
Size:  21.4 KB

Anything that can be done about it?

Thanks in advance,

IT is an error in the function that gets all the images in the folder. if you get that, there are no other gifs in the folder. Should be a quick fix.

Ok fixed it. Now THIS should work without flaw

Hotkey now only is on while the window is open. this prevents interference with anything else running

I have been working on a way to call the magnifier tool to use it for zoom, but no luck so far.
