"No Program is Registered ..." error when selecting a hyperlink in MS Word 2010 to open/view a jpg image.

Using MS Access 2013
Has links to open word document containing links to open jpg images.
When I select the hyperlinks in MS Word (2013) I receive the following error:
"No Program is Registered ..."

When I open Word document directly from Windows Explorer - same problem

When I double-click (open) jpg images from Windows Explorer - no problems as image opens in MS Office Image Viewer

I have checked the file associations in windows (7) and MSO Image Viewer is associated to jpg.

Checked a few forums but nothing is helping fix my issue. The same problem occurs in hyperlinks I have in MS Excel.

Note: All hyperlinks in Word/Excel associated to PDF files work ok (Adobe Reader).

Any help appreciated - Gary

You need to change a registry option to make this work I believe.  http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/officeversion_other-word/change-default-program-when-opening-hyperlinked/61e1c089-4184-482d-92cd-e7b33a768155

The summary is:

(1) Run  regedit.exe

(2) Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT -> jpegfile -> CLSID

(3) Right-click on “Default” (the Value Name) and select “Modify”

(4) Change “Value data” from {25336920-03F9-11cf-8FD0-00AA00686F13} to {FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}
