After upgrading from 1.9.0 beta i receive many of those errormessages when i press "find duplicates"
(see image attached)

i use the 64-bit version. the similarity executable was called Similarity64.exe before, now it's just Similarity.exe even for the 64-bit version.
My link in taskbar still pointed to the (after upgrade still present) Similarity64.exe which called the newer Decoder.exe, hence the errormessage.

It is fixed now, just wanted to post if someone ran into the same problem

It seems you sometime copied beta version into original Similarity path (which your installed with installer) (beta version has 2 exe Similarity.exe (32bit) and Similarity64.exe (64bit)), and after new install you started old version Similarity64.exe via link (new Decoder.exe incomparable with old Similarity version).
Installer versions always use "Similarity.exe" file name, 32-bit and 64-bit versions installed into different locations "Programs Files" and "Program Files (x86)".

New image preview control (speed improvements and fixes)

How do you activate this please?

Thank you so much for the "New flat grouping mode"! You are so listening to your client's feedback  :)
