The fix worked for me on Windows 8.

I just logged on to UtterAccess tonight to let everyone know that the image problem appears to have been fixed. Seems I'm over a week late. My excuse is that the machine I use for 90% of my Access work still has 2013 on it; the problem with rendering images is the main reason that machine hasn't been updated. Working a little on this machine today (the other 10%), I didn't really notice. It finally occurred to me in the shower that I had not seen gaping blank spots where there should have been an image. As soon as I got out of the shower, I lit up this machine again to check and voila!

The nicest part is that I'm going to have to take your word for this problem being fixed on 12/8. I obviously applied some maintenance after that date but I have no idea when. If I had the KB number, I could find out but it really isn't that important.

Thank you, Microsoft!

Rather annoyingly this is STILL broken in the runtime (as of 15/3/16). Works in full 2016 but not when you use the latest runtime. The KB update doesn't work with the runtime either - complains that the software it fixes is not installed.
