Since re-installing Windows XP a while ago, I have had difficulty with image files (JPG and BMP). If I try to open e.g. Some_Image.jpg directly by double-clicking I get an error message "some_image.jpg is not a valid Win32 application".
If I right-click Edit with Fireworks that is OK.
Now the key problem for me - which I think may be related: I have an Access Database which includes an OLEBound image object. Normally you right click this object and choose Insert Object. However, instead of the picture showing, it just gives the name of the image file, like name.bmp. I tried copying the database file to a different PC and it worked fine, but I need it to work on my PC! I would really like to resolve this so any bright ideas would be very welcome! Thanks. David.
