Images in Access Runtime problem

P: n/a
Hi Everybody

I have an Access 2000 db with a setup for inserting images in records.
I am using the image path only with the actual images stored elswhere
on the hard disc. This works perfectly well with all of Microsoft
developer installed on the system.

The problem is when I give this to a user who has NOT got Access 2000,
ie I just give him an installation that installs a runtime, my
frontend/backend and images, an error says that Access does not
support the files requested (.jpg and .gif)

Anyone know of a fix for this.

If you are using .jpg and .gif with the Image control, the user must have
the graphics filters installed. They come with standalone Microsoft Word and
Office Professional, but are not necessarily installed by the user even
though they may have one of those packages installed. You are not licensed
to redistribute the graphics filters with the Developer Edition. Check at
MVP Stephen Lebans' site... he may have a control for displaying those
images that does not require the graphics filters.

Thanks, Stephen. I thought I remembered that, but didn't have time and
energy to visit your site to verify before responding. That removes the only
significant drawback to using Image controls that I have encountered. In my
experience, JPG and GIF are, by far, the most commonly used compressed image
file formats.
