Microsoft Photo Editor
I need help! Microsoft Photo Editor (MPE) does not open .jpg images. It has for the past 8 years but after doing a clean installation of WinXP Pro it fails to open .jpg or .jpeg images. I have already tried a number of things from associateing the filter file to MPE in folder options and I have searched Microsofts knowledge base, which has been of little help. It said that I need to install the right files from an MS Office dics which I don't have. So the next step was to call MS and they said that they can't help me with this program??? But suggested that I buy an Office 2000 or 2002. I've already bought MS Home Essentials years ago where MPE came with. I believe that all I need is a plugin or some information to write to the registry. Those files do not show the name, path or extension to the .jpg filter while the rest of the file extensions that MPE uses, does show all that info. Short of going out and buying Office software, is there a simple solution to get MPE to open .jpg images again?
Thanks, any help would be appreciated.
