Default Running WinXP's "Picture & Fax Viewer" under WinME

I am using the Windows Millenium Edition O/S, and when I double-click on an image-file like a .JPG or .BMP the image-file is loaded into WinME's "Image Preview" program.

I've checked "Folder Options-File Types-.JPG" to see what the command-line is when a .JPG image-file is double-clicked and it's this:

rundll32.exe c:\Windows\System\SHIMGVW.DLL,ImageView_Fullscreen %1

I've seen WinXP's updated "Picture & Fax Viewer" version of WinME's "Image Preview", and it's far better because it has PREV/NEXT buttons which allow you to (for instance) scroll back & forth through an entire Explorer Folder of .JPG holiday photos.

I've tried to run WinXP's "Picture & Fax Viewer" under WinME by downloading the later & bigger SHIMGVW.DLL file to c:\windows\temp and then changing the "Folder Options-File Types-.JPG" command-line to this:

rundll32.exe c:\Windows\temp\SHIMGVW.DLL,ImageView_Fullscreen %1

But when I double-click on a .JPG image-file after changing the command-line like this, I get this error-message popup:



Can anyone tell me whether this error message means that WinXP's SHIMGVW.DLL file contains "pointers" or something to other WinXP .DLL files that rundll32.exe needs to access, or whether it means that WinXP's "Picture & Fax Viewer" just won't run under WinME?

It means that XP's "Picture & Fax Viewer" isn't designed to be run on Win
Me. For example XP's version of rundll32.exe is different from that in
Win Me (and also won't run on Win Me).
