How can I display a .jpg format picture in my stand alone Access97 runtime application if the target PC does not have a JPG graphics filter which is normally installed by Word97 or Microsoft Office97?  In other words ... assume the target PC does not have any Microsoft Office programs.

Microsoft has suggested I use some form of ActiveX control but they are not able to provide one nor suggest who may have one that will do the job.

if the jpeg remains constant, just include the object as
embedded instead of linked.  you shouldn't need to keep the
file or its format since it will be part of the runtime app.

The .jpg files cannot be embedded since it would result in an extremely large database.  I call these files into my application be using a text field (stored in a table)which contains the pathname (example: c:\myapp\pictures\one.jpg). Each record refers to a unique picture. I am using an ImageFrame control to display the picture.  Everything works fine providing the target PC has Word97 or Office97 Professional but if neither of these applications exist ... the picture won't display.

I tried installing the JPEG filter file jpegim32.flt with my setup wizard but it doesn't work.

Can you suggest how I can get around this problem?

Any version of IE is a .jpg viewer.  MS sets it to the default viewer when you install Windows.  If, somehow it was lost, then you'll need to create the association for .jpg with iexplore.exe.
