Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit, 3 GHz / 1919 MB
I am sending a .jpg file that I created with the PAINT program to let a user know that I have remotely done some work on his computer. I would want this message (jpg) to show on his monitor until he closes it.
He has Windows7 with Windows Photo Viewer that I would like to display the jpg with regardless of his default settings or other graphic programs that might open the jpg.The presentation with WPV is just what I want.
I think a batch file might work but I don;t know enough about creating one.
Anybody?

If you have access to his account (and I won't comment on the legalities of having such), you possibly could just use WPV as the default viewer for .jpg images; then insert the image into the Start-Up folder. Upon starting up (theoretically) it should display the image. Of course, if he had another default program for .jpg images, he may not appreciate you changing the association to WPV.

I think I need a batch file that does the following;
.
1. Right click the jpg file.
2. Select "OPEN WITH"
3.Select WPV
4. Click "ENTER"

Leave it to him to close.
I would hide this baytch file and the jpb in a folder on his HD.

There are quick message programs available that work on a network like an office which if installed on each computer will pop up a message on their desktop when you send it or when they log on since they are set to start with windows when installed. I remember we tried one at work on a 30 day trial basis, but there should be free ones out there. I think the one was text only but that was a few years ago and they may have advanced since then.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
