Opening picture using MS Picture & Fax Viewer

P: n/a
Using the following code:

Dim q As String
q = Chr(34)
RetVal = Shell("explorer " & q & CurrentProject.Path & "\" & Me.Location &
"\" & Me.Image & q, vbNormalFocus)

I am able to open a windows folder related to the current record. I would
also like to allow the user to dblclick the employees headshot to open that
photo using the Microsoft Picture & Fax Viewer. Since this is not a stand
alone program, I'm having some dificulties. The path to that file is as

rundll32.exe %SystemRoot%\System32\shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullsc reen %1

I tried to replace "explorer" with the line above but its a no go. Any
thoughts on alternatives?
