[dba-VB] Picture and Fax Viewer

Unfortunately, it is a DLL (shimgvw.dll).  Out of curiousity I googled for
some info on it.  I saw several suggestions saying use the command line
rundll32.exe shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen,<filename> but I couldn't get
it to work myself.

I tried adding a reference to it in a VB6 project, and browsed through its
methods.  It has a ShowFile method that appears to load the image, and a
Show method that should display it.  The Show method has requires a single
argument and I can't figure out exactly what it wants.

I searched codehound and psc as well, with no success.  I'm sure the answer
is out there.
