I am trying to save Windows BMPs as JPEGs. It will work at first, but after a few saves, the SaveAs dialogue (where it shows the thumbnails) will freeze, and I have to C-A-D and end the task. PMView will then not work at all beyond opening: can't open a file or recall or even show Help:About, until I reboot.

After this began I upgraded from 2.10(?) to 2.13; same problem.

I am running Win98 with Object Desktop Control Center and Tabbed LaunchPad; and ICQ. Closing those seemed to make no difference.

On the same machine, I have not had this problem in the past; but then, I was running OS/2 at the time .

This sounds like either a display driver bug or a problem with OD, or a combination of both.

Window Blinds (1.0x), also made by Stardock, used to have several bugs that caused PMView to behave erratically. I have not checked more recent versions to see if they ever got out the bugs...

In any case you have reason to believe that either your display driver or Object Desktop is to blame. Make sure that both OD and your display driver are at the latest revision.

BTW, are you aware that you can do the file conversion by just right clicking on one of the files in the File->Open dialog?
