Have you associated the file type .c4 to xnview?  You will likely need to do that.

It is possible that you may not be able to just double click the file from explorer.  If you right click and select open with .... that is another option.

The way you are describing it sounds like xnviewer is not installed correctly.

When you open the xnviewer then open the file from within it works fine?

It sounds like something from the install of xnviewer isn't connected properly.  Otherwise when you choose xnviewer as the program to use it should work.  

Have you tried to reinstall the xnviewer program?

after reinstalling xnview it still did not work. but at the same time i had another program called jviewer which before the reinstall of xnview, was giving me the same problem. But now that program is working fine...
