Photodraw filter and MS Access 2000 error

P: n/a

I am maintaining an Access 2000 database for many users that uses an
image control to display JPG, GIF and PNG files. One and only one user
in particular continues to get an error message of "The PhotoDraw MIX
file import filter couldn't load. Try reinstalling Microsoft Office to
fix this problem." This error happens when the database first starts
and everything seems fine thereafter. There was a previous thread on
this (2002-06-20) that was never answered so with a little help,
perhaps this can be solved once and for all.

Researching on Microsoft's web site, I found references to the fact
that multiple versions of the C:\Program Files\Common
Files\Microsoft Shared\Grphflt\Fpx32.flt exist and upgrading to a more
recent version may solve this problem (see

My question is if the user with problems has Fpx32.flt version, is this the most current and up to date? My computer
doesn't have this file on it at all nor do I have the version of
Office with the third Photodraw CD. If it is not up to date, any help
in forwarding the correct file would be greatly appreciated.
