Pictures are not displayed properly ("QuickTime and a TIFF decompressor are needed to see this picture")

Some pictures in a Word-Doc created on OSX, OfficeX, are not displayed properly on my WinXP System running Word 2003. Instead of the picture the following message is printed: "QuickTime and a TIFF (uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture."

I reinstalled the latest version of QuickTime (Version 6) with all options selected, but the problem remained the same. If the document is opened on a OSX-Mac (OfficeX) all pictures are displayed properly.

A Google-Search returned plenty of Documents (mostly PDFs) showing the same message, but unfortunately no working tips to fix it...

Thanks for any kind of hints to solve this!

Thanks for your input!

The PP-Tip by Dreamboat deals with the same problem. The solution they give is to reopen the pictures and save them in an uncompressed format. I'm sure this is working. Unfortunately i dont have the pictures as separate files (only embedded in the word doc...)

The link provided by Michael does not exactly hit the core of the problem. But thanks anyway for your engagement!

Does anybody have further inputs? Thanks in advance!
Bernhard
