The link you provided was very helpful : I managed to make it work. As the W7 interface is a bit different from the Vista one, I had to adapt slightly. Note that as W7 has "libraries" the Pictures directory is not treated in the same manner as under XP (do not quite understand yet but managed to access it anyway).
