Hello. Can anyone recommend a Deja Vu viewer for windows XP ? Most online now are only for Vista and up, not XP. Most of THOSE are also from sources I consider suspect ... don't want to get a virus over this ...

any assistance appreciated

I am not sure which of the viewers have current versions that support XP so that may be an issue requiring you to find an older version rather than the ones linked via the edebris site.

I started using IrFanview most of the time; I downloaded it primarily for resizing jpg files but I found that it handles DjVu files quite well.

Most freeware programs are going to be hosted on sites that do try to stick other content with them so un-check any options that add stuff and then run Malwarebytes or similar after download.

To open and view .djvu files (pronounced déjà vu).
I use Léon Bottou's Djview, available from djvulibre.djvuzone.org. Works great.

Download from sourceforge https://sourceforge.net/projects/djvu/files/

Thanks to all!! I got the french one to work :) ... Thank you Egg, and the rest of you for your assistance.

I found I had to download the djvu file, then open deja vu, and then use IT to open the file I'd downloaded. Simply clicking on the BAMA djvu file came up with various errors. Oh well, I'll keep fiddling with it. "handle not found" is a new one on me :)

anyway, thanks again
Barry

I'm sure if Greg suggested it... it's probably a great program but if you have the time you might want to try this program as well.....I've been using WinDjView on my old XP for years...I also have it installed on a couple of Win 10 machines and never had a problem opening DjVu files

A suggestion...

If you have a print option in the DjVu reader, print the document to a PDF file.

That way you can access it from a multitude of viewers.
