XnView not opening? (solution inside)

I love the XnView image viewer. It is fast and simple, navigation is easy and it has handy hotkeys for rotate\resize\crop\save(as) functions (the only editing functions I require from an image viewer)

One day the XnView stopped opening :(

Either if I opened XnView from Start Menu or if I opened an image with it - XnView program just appeared in the taskbar but the actual window never appeared :(. I even reinstalled it but no luck, it still wasn't opening.

Here is what I did to fix this:

I went to the C:\Users\ubeogesh\AppData\Roaming\XnView (ubeogesh is the username) folder and deleted the XnView.ini file and that fixed the problem. It may be that some setting inside the XnView was corrupt, but I don't really care. The few settings I use are quite easy to reconfigure rather then digging inside that INI file.

Note that this works only if you choose the default option when starting XnView (store XnView settings in INI file per-user)
