    When I try to open any jpg file, I get a message that says it cannot locate missing ipe.exe file and the purpose of that file is to open jpgs. Do I have to redownload that exe. or what do I do. I cannot view any jpgs with out this exe. file. where would I get this download if it is possible to get it at all. Help.
    Thanks

    Do you have something called IPhotoExpress made by a company called Ulead installed on the PC? If so, reinstall it and that should fix the problem.

    Or you should be able to just use InternetExplorer to view .jpg files. Try this and see if it fixes it. First be sure you don't have any instances of Internet Explorer open. Then click on the folllowing,

    Start>Settings>ControlPanel>InternetOptions.

    Now click on the "Programs" tab. Now at the bottom, select "Internet Explorer should check to see if it's the default..." and click on Apply and then OK.

    Now start IE and when prompted, click on Yes to make IE your default. That should reset the file associations.

    Now try to open a .jpg

    Let us know what happens. If that doesn't work, there are other ways to reassociate a file manually.

    Hi Bonneee...try this:

    Highlight a JPG file by clicking on it, then right-click on it while holding down the Shift key. Select the "Open with" option on the menu. Click on Iexplore, or whatever your viewer is, and put a check in the "Always open..." box.

    BTW, ipe.exe is a Ulead program.

    *Edit* - sheesh Bryan, you're up early. :)

    That's actually good because you gave her the other option to reassociate it manually so she has everything she needs now.

    Thanks ...
