WebBrowser Not Displaying pictures.

Curtis Underwood asked:

Open original thread
Hi all,
I have a webbrowser I am trying to use to display a Manual.htm that is built using MS Word. This manual is for an aplication I have written. I have tried all the MS word save functions that save the file as a Html or web page document. This is the wierd part the document will show correctly if it is opened from Internet Explorer(I even saved this webpage that was displayed correctly in IE and tried using this file in the webbrowser control but it still did not show the pictures).
But from my application it will show all the text with it's formating but a blank area is shown where the picture is. There is no red X or any thing that would represent the picture having a problem.
I have tryed all the suggestions I found in searches for this type problem. My system is completely up to date with all MS updates. I am running windows 7 ultimate, Visual Studio ultimate, VB, on a 32 bit laptop. The code below is what I last tried in the code using the webbrowser control.
sitepath = System.IO.Path.Combine("C:\Users\Curtis\Documents\Manual.html")
       Dim theStreamreader As New StreamReader(sitepath)
       Dim file As String = theStreamreader.ReadToEnd()
       'RichTextBox1.Text = file
       WebBrowser1.AllowNavigation = True

       WebBrowser1.DocumentText = file

The only thing I can think of is some setting either in the webbrowser or Visual studio that is causing this but I cannot find that setting. I have not tried publishing the application yet to see if it still done this after publishing but in debug it should work as in a published version.

Thanks for any help in this.
