Windows Server 2008 Standard sp2 Issues with Windows Photo Viewer

Hello,

i work with a software company, our software opens images using the default file association.
I'm having an issue with Windows server 2008 R2 servers, when one user is opening a image file using the default, windows photo viewer, the application opens fine. But if another user is logged in as well they cannot open files in Windows Photo Viewer.  

this hotfix resolved the issue completely.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980393/en-us

However, this hotfix cannot be applied to Windows Server 2008 Standard? i get the message "the update does not apply to your system" when running.
Desktop Experience feature has been installed.

does anyone know of a similar hotfix or workaround?

The hotfix is for R2 only (file version starts with 6.1).  Might want to call Microsoft about it; not sure if you will have to pay for support incident.

According to the article, the workaround is to use a different program.

I haven't been able to find anything for 2008; only R2.
