The new window needs to be web page of it's own.  I guess you could 'pop-up' just the image.  Maybe the path is wrong?  Show me the 'open.window' code.

I dont think there is anything wrong with the open window code.  When i enable directory browsing on my web server and browse/click on the image i still get the small red cross icon.

Ok, the post the image if you can.  JPGs come in more than one 'flavor'.  If you can open it in an image viewer or editor, try saving it under a slightly different name and see if you can view that in IE.

I can view the image in the standard Windows Image/Fax viewer... but not in IE.

The problem is that it is in CMYK mode, not RGB, and IE, at least up to IE8, does not display JPEGs in CMYK encoding.  If you open it in an image program and resave it as an RGB JPG, you'll be able to view it.

In Irfanview http://www.irfanview.com/ , you can press 'I' for information and it tells you that it's a JPEG and CMYK.  Photoshop and other image programs will tell that also.  CMYK color encoding is used for printing while RGB is used for monitors.
