Reviewing 4.42 (Mar 11, 2016)
Just installed 4.42 64-bit a few minutes ago. At least this time many more of the plugins now work. Eventually, I want to complete not use 32-bit version; hope that to happen soon. :)
Reviewing 4.41 (Dec 1, 2015)
Took longer to open and save photos. Had to go back to the 32-bit version.

I feel like Irfanview is part of the family it's been with me so long.
As stated below it's followed me onto every OS I've installed. and now on Win10
and still works perfectly.
If it came to my wife or Irfanview, well at this stage Irfanview can't do the washing up after I cook at night ......... but if one day........... well I'll say no more.
Reviewing 4.40 (Aug 8, 2015)
jpeg jpg works fine on my end under windows 7 64 bit running IrfanView 64 bit runs flawless!
Reviewing 4.40 (Aug 6, 2015)
Not really sure why you cannot view jpg/jpeg files, but it works perfectly for me.
I have been using IV since the late 90s & never ever had a windows os without this installed. Works well, great speed, handles almost unlimited list of extensions, great feedback and consistent updates by the author.
I did read on the homepage that the 64 bit has certain limitations as not all plugins have not yet been ported, but I really don't care ... am extremely happy!
@Frank, My review was based on the 64bit! I used it and it worked perfectly on my Win7 Pro 64bit computer. I had no issues with jpeg/jpg files. If you say it has problems on "Some" computers, is it not likely that something else is not allowing IV to work well. There is no need to rate the program 1 if you know for certain that the problem exists only on some computers. IV itself has no problem. The problem is obviously lying somewhere else. Write to the author. He is very helpful and will assist in tracking down the problem.
