Additional Comments

Gif and some Jpeg images that do not display properly appear as flattened and warped images. Also they occur regardless of what type of archive they are put in (zip cbr etc.) I don't know what type of jpeg files CDisplay has problems with but I know that this bug does not exist on a regular installation of CDisplay on either Windows XP, or Windows Vista. As for the gif images, i only used gif images i made using GIMP 2.4.5. I used the Gimp to create all images except for certain jpeg files that I knew CDisplay had displayed incorrectly.

HowTo / Notes


When I initially installed it and tried to open files it said that it could not find the dlls necessary to access zip&rar archives (although they were clearly in the folder). I later on installed sidenet, and fiddled around with winecfg (no changing of the stuff in the Libraries tab) such as assigning drives and such. When I tried again, everything worked perfectly, (I also have wine set as win98).
