IE 7.0 and PNG problem

 10:24 pm on Jan 25, 2007 (gmt 0)


I haven't used IE for a while. Today I opened with my IE 7.0 (recently updated) and found my IE 7.0 can't display png file but red cross. Before I think it's normal and my current Firefox has no problem at all. I have checked internet option --> tools --> advance --> media --> show pictures. But it doesn't help me.

Since I haven't used it for a while, I don't what has been changed during other installation. Does anyone has any clue? BIG THANKS.

Sorry I have no suggestions for you, only to confirm that IE7 does in fact display .png files (I just tested.)

OMG!, thank lord, I'm not crazy, nor my PC is charmed either.
I've been suffering with this lately, and could not find an answer. I mean, I did not realize it was a matter of inability of display and I thought it was a problem with my template.

Anyone else in the world with this problem? or is it only me and nomatter?

We're not alone:

As I said above, I am having no problems displaying .png files, even tranparent .png file with IE7 (standard install on WinXP Home.)

...Iím a developer on the Internet Explorer team here at Microsoft...PNG support is looking quite solid in IE7, based on our tests.
