snapview report won't display on web in windows 7, ie 8

We have website that generates snap view reports.  We've recently started upgrading some of our pc's to Windows 7 (with IE8).  The reports won't display on the web page, you just get a big red X.  
We've downloaded the most recent version of snapview from MS.  You go to the directory were the .snp file is stored and open it in snapview okay, just can't open it on the webpage.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

snp format is "closed" by Microsoft. You should change it to pdf or html

Not sure but Snapshot Reports may have been deprecated in Win7 (32 bit/64 bit) and/or IE8...

If so then you can switch to using PDF's.

You can use any of the many PDF utilities to do this in Access 2003:

Thanks for your comments.  

Solution was to manually register the OCX.  After downloading (on to Win 7 32 bit) it appeared to install correctly but wasn't registering the OCX.  

Manually Register the Snapview.OCX from the run command line using:
regsvr32 "c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Snapshot Viewer\snapview.ocx"

Other solutions were to change to new/different application. My solution allowed existing application to function properly.
