After an upgrade from PME 7.2.x to PME 8.0 I can no longer see background images in WebReach

Customer has performed a side-by-side or in-place upgrade from PME 7.2.x. They are able to see all their backgrounds in vista, but when they navigate to WebReach, all the images in the JPEG format don't appear. The images in the BMP format appear correctly. They are specifying the image location via an UNC path as they configure screens using engineering clients.

This is a known issue with PME8 that was caused by adding support for PNG and GIF background images in Vista.
