Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)

What works
everything works. Makes great slide shows, lots of different parameters to set and makes either slides or screensaver (scr for win.) 

What does not
I have found nothing which doesn't work.

What was not tested
Haven't tested video or audio portions. Should be able to provide audio background for slide shows or videos. Haven't used audio/video portions as I have no use for them. Haven't tried screensaver as I don't use them.

Additional Comments

Best app of its type I've found, either on Win or linux. Nconvert doesn't match.

Irfanview 4.35 works well with wine 1.4.1 & Ubuntu 12.10
by Bernard Gisin on Monday May 20th 2013, 16:39
I wanted to install Irfanview using wine, but my first try didn't work.

I copied the file "mfc42.dll" from a Windows system under the directory "c:\windows\system32", put it on an USB key and copied it on the hidden Ubuntu directory "/home/bg/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32" ("bg" is my identifier).
Then there was no problem to install 'Irfanview', version 4.35.
I use Ubuntu 12.10 with Wine 1.4.1

I use also 'Total Commander', a very good file manager, which is a reference, and is similar to 'gnome commander', 'double commander', krusader', 'midnight commander', and works fine with Wine. It can use 'Irfanview' as a viewer and is very practical to install other Windows applications in Ubuntu.

Thank you at all the WineHQ team.

Small glitch with IrfanView 4.3.2 install on Mac
by Bodhi on Sunday April 7th 2013, 3:53
I am posting this as a thank you, and hoping it may serve as a guide for other Wine newbies like myself.

I just installed Wine (1.4.1) and Winebottler on Snow Leopard. While the install went smoothly, I got an error in Winebottler when I tried to install the predefined prefix for IrfanView.

However I was able to easily fix the problem. I simply manually created the new folder "Wine" in:
"Users//Library/Application Support/"
Then rebooted, launched WineBottler and tried again. Voila! IrfanView v4.3.2 now runs on my iMac. Yippee!!!! :)

This little gem, (even at a walloping 68MB as a bottled app) is a web designers dream come true, and though certainly not a replacement for a full fledged editing program like PS or Gimp, it is FAST and SMART!

It loads quickly, remembers the last used settings for most of the editing functions and the file open and "save as" directories, and has shortcut keys for nearly every function. It is the first tool I reach for when scaling, cropping, and color correcting photos for a web site. And it was the last tool tying me to Windows as a web design platform.

IMO, no native Mac graphics app in this class even comes close to competing with Irfanview for speed, stability, versatility, and ease of use.

Many, many thanks to both the Wine developers, and to Irfan Skiljan for making this all possible. I am overjoyed!
