Problem With Embedded jpg Image

P: n/a
Can anyone please advise me on the following :

I am developing an access 2002 app that shows a customers picture, the
picture is stored on the hard drive not in a table.
I use the following code to change the image obj.picture=filename.

I have no problem if the machine on which I run the app has Microsoft Photo
Editor loaded, but as I am deploying the
app with access runtime, therefore the client's will not all have a
Microsoft Photo Editor license.

If the app is run on a machine I get an error that says the file is either
in a non recognizable format and I should
convert it to bmp or gif format - WHY ???

TIA

Technically MS Photo Editor has nothing to do with this issue. The
Office Graphics Filters are not installed with the Runtime only
environment. If the user has one of the other major Office elements
installed then it is not an issue.
For those case where the Runtime does not have access to the properly
installed and registered Office graphics filters then you can use:

transparency in Transparent Gifs. Allows you to resize Images on
Forms/Reports at runtime with no loss of Image quality.
