VB Script to open a new web browser window and display text and images

I stripped out a lot of stuff out of the code below to simplify my question a little.
I am using a VBS file to open a web browser window and display some text and an image.
The text works fine, but the image does not appear, only the place holder.
I modified the line to display the image a few times adding quotes around the file name with no luck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
Dim objIE, objDoc
 
'Open a new browser session
Set objIE = WScript.CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
 
'Set Browser Parameters
objIE.AddressBar = False
objIE.FullScreen = True
objIE.MenuBar = False
objIE.Resizable = False
objIE.Silent = True
objIE.StatusBar = False
objIE.TheaterMode = False
objIE.ToolBar = False
 
objIE.Width = 700
objIE.Height = 500
objIE.Visible = 100
 
objIE.Navigate "about:blank"
objIE.Visible = True
 
Set objDoc = objIE.Document
 
'Display Output Text
objDoc.Write "<html><head>"
objDoc.Write "<title>Hello!</title>"
objDoc.Write "</head>"
objDoc.Write "<body>"
objDoc.Write "<p align=center><font color=#FFFFFF>Space"
objDoc.Write "<p align=center><font color=#FFFFFF>Space"
objDoc.Write "<p align=center><font color=#FFFFFF>Space"
objDoc.Write "<p align=center><font color=#FFFFFF>Space"
objDoc.Write "<p align=center><font color=#000000 size=+2>Displaying Image<br></p>"
objDoc.Write "<p></p>"
objDoc.Write "<p align=center><img src=c:\fileprogress.gif width=546 height=27 border=0></img>"
objDoc.Write "</html>"

Open in new window

Hi, this line:
objDoc.Write "<p align=center><img src=c:\fileprogress.gif width=546 height=27 border=0></img>"

should be
objDoc.Write "<p align='center'><img src='c:\fileprogress.gif' width='546' height='27' border='0'></img>"

Regards,

Rob.

I have tried that and it does not work.  Same results.  I tried this on IE6 and 7 on Win2000 and XP.  Any other suggestions?

Hi, your code works for me as is, actually, although you are missing a couple of tags.

Add
</p></body>

directly after the </img> tag.

But that didn't really make a difference to functionality.

Can you confirm the file is in exactly that place, case sensitive named?

Regards,

Rob.
