File association problem with Agent.

    Use to be that when I clicked on a photo in Agent and then clicked Launch in
    the pop up window, Windows Picture and Fax Viewer would launch and display
    the image. Recently I started getting the message, "There is no application
    associated with MIME type image/jpeg..."

    I wanted to make an association to Windows Picture and Fax Viewer but
    Microsoft has hidden it so well that I was not able to find it.

    Doing some research, I found what I understood was a fix here:

    http://www.dougknox.com/xp/file_assoc.htm

    I downloaded and ran the fix for JPEG associations.

    Now I get a different Agent error message when attempting to launch a photo
    from Agent. It reads, "Unable to execute command C:/ DOCUME~1\..." ending in
    the name of the JPEG.

    Is there any way to tell Agent that I want it to use Windows Picture and Fax
    Viewer to launch images?
