Access not displaying images

I have a customer who is getting this error when trying to display a jpeg:

<AccessFile> doesn't support the format of the file <path to image> or file is to large. try converting the file to BMP or GIF format.

This customer is using Access 2003 on a terminal server. The image that is trying to be opened is very small (around 15 kb). I have already instructed the IT department to install the Office 2003 resource kit located at: The IT guy said that he installed this and rebooted the server, but the error persists. Anybody have any other suggestions?

How access is supposed to open the image file?
