Suppress the "Loading Image" dialog

P: n/a
Bri
AC97 on WinXP, Image control on a Form and on a Report.

I have followed the advice on the following MVPS page:
http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0038.htm

This states that after changing the Registry setting for the progress
bar to 'no' that it should no longer display. I have made the change,
but the progress bar continues to display.

Am I missing something? Does the PC need to be rebooted after the
setting is changed to take effect?

Here's a previous post of mine on this issue.
The one thing you must do is turn of the Loading Image dialog. If you don't,
and quickly scroll through the records in Form view, or page quickly in
Print Preview, you run the risk of crashing Access. Use the Registry mod at
the Access MVP site:
Additionally, two issues in regards to the Registry modification pointed to
here http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0038.htm
1) The Registry key MUST be "No" NOT "no" or "NO"
2) On systems with XP or on systems with more than one user account,
you must add/modify the key in both HKEY_CURRENT_USER and
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

I was following api0038. I did set the value to "No". I was only setting
the one key, but have now set both and that seems to have done it. While
doing this I have another 'issue' that you could add to your list; the
registry key for JPG files is JPEG not JPG.

I am designing this app on WinXP, but it will be used on a variety of
different OS's including Win2k, Win2k3 Server. Is setting both keys
going to be a problem there?

Thanks

Nope, should not be any problem at all.
