Viewing GIF animation in a web browser control in a Form

Dear All,
I have been struggling to cope with enabling GIF animation files on Access
forms. Unfortunately, a few of my client's PC's continue to be very
unhelpful with registering GIF89.dll and so my Access application refuses to
display animations as it should.
I dont want to use .avi files as they tend to be cumbersome and large.
I have come across various articles that claim that the Microsoft Web
Browser control can display GIF animations within an Access form.
If that is the case, can someone please guide me to the resources which give
detailed information and steps in utilizing the Web Browser control for
displaying GIF animations within an Access form.

Your help shall be much obliged.
Thanks in advance.

Place code in the Form's Load event or behind the Click event of the
releant control.

Me.NameOfYourWebBrowserControl.Object.Navigate
"C:\NameOfYourAnimatedGif.gif"

Folks, you have been excellent. I almost gave up following on this post of
mine because I thought I may have been shooting in the dark.
Thanks once again.
