I am having trouble getting my Access 2K application to run with the Access 2016 runtime.  

I started with an Access 2K MDB file.
I opened it with Office 360 and then saved in in Access 2002-2003 format as an MDB.

Next I compiled the Access 2002-2003 mdb with Office 360 and created an MDE.
Finally I downloaded the Access 2016 Runtime to another machine... this one did not have Office 360... it was a clean install of Win10 with just the Access 2K Runtime.

When I run mde on the machine with Office 360 installed everything is perfect.  The images I have embedded in every form are perfect.

When I run the MDE on the machine using the Access 2016 Runtime, the application mostly works. but a few things are wrong.
For example, NONE of the images embedded in my forms are there.  They are all missing.

I thought this would be a good place to start... Any ideas what's wrong?
