Thank you Joe. I got a 404 when I went to download the plug-ins from the Irfanview site and went to TUCOWS where plug-ins version 4.38 was available. I haven't tried any other download site yet.
Can you confirm, please, the version number of the latest plugins? Are the installer and plug-ins both version 4.40?

I am able to answer my own question as the download link to version 4.40 of the plug-ins is now working.

Thank you again Joe for the notification,

Malcolm

Ta, it may have a rather outdated interface but I wouldn't be without IrfanView.

Thanks JoeP. And I like the fact it is also Win10 compliant as I am in the process of gathering Win10 compliant software in preparation for the eventual upgrade.
