Trouble with a picture

I am trying to add a picture to a form that is visible depending on
certain criteria. The picture works perfectly on my computer, but on
other users computers this image is either black or scrambled. Can
someone please help!??!?

There are multiple ways to "add a picture to a form". How are you going
about it? My off-the-top-of-my-head guess is that you are using a Bound
Object Frame to display an OLE Object and that you have different image
processing software registered for the image file type on the two computers.

Newsgroups are good places to get answers, and you will find that people in
this one try to be more helpful than in many others. The questions most
likely to get useful answers are those that are "precise and concise". Yours
meets the latter criteria, but contains almost no detail. For good
suggestions on effective use of newsgroups, see

The sample imaging databases at http://accdevel.tripod.com illustrate three
approaches to handling images in Access, and the download includes an
article discussing considerations in choosing an approach. Two of the
approaches do not use OLE Objects and, thus, avoid the database bloat, and
some other problems, associated with images in OLE Objects. They do not
illustrate every way to handle images... one is to put a hyperlink field in
a table, another is to just put a path and filename in the table and use the
Application.Fol lowHyperlink to call the registered image processing
software. Finally, you'll find an ActiveX control, freely downloadable, at
MVP Stephen Lebans' site, for displaying imagess. Access 2007 has
additional features.

If you are printing the images in reports, to avoid memory leakage, you
should also see MVP Stephen Lebans' http://www.lebans.com/printfailures.htm.
PrintFailure.zi p is an Access97 MDB containing a report that fails during
the Access formatting process prior to being spooled to the Printer Driver.
This MDB also contains code showing how to convert the contents of the Image
control to a Bitmap file prior to printing. This helps alleviate the "Out of
Memory" error that can popup when printing image intensive reports.

Hi friends, Okay so well, I have quite a problem right now with a file stream. What I am doing is to use the Cannon SDK dlls to get control over my old Cannon A60 Camera for some surveillance useage. By using ctypes it all worked well until now. I am able to load the dlls, use a lot of functions, am able to connect to the camera, read out some params, send commands etc... but now I am stuck with reading the picture data.
