One more thing left to move to XailerFR - PNG picture

We have a number of users that embed PNG images in fr3 files.
When those files are loaded to Xailer version, some embedded
PNG images are not recognized.
They are just silently ignored and empty frame is shown.
Since PNG is used for invoice logo images, it could be hard to
upgrade without contacting every client.
Is there any help? Any advice?
Example fr3 file can be downloaded from here: http://lovor.net/u_1101.fr3
Thank you.

I can manually reload png to FRX report, and it show fine. But the problem is that we have a number of users with already made reports that will be left with blanks after upgrade to FRX.

Hello,
When I open the file with FR with absolutely no interaction of FRX I can not see the PNG file on the report. BTW if I reload the PNG file on the designer and save it. Then I have no problem to see the report with the PNG file when I open it through FRX. I attach the new file into this message.
It seems there is a corruption on your original FR3 file or maybe a incompatiblity issue between FR from Sergey and ours.
Since the problem arises with absolutely no interaction with our sofware, the problem is not from us.
Regards,

We reported the issue to FastReport also, and we got back that picture is displayed
fine with FR version 4.15.13.
Check forum link here: http://www.fast-report.com/en/forum/index.php?showtopic=1240 9
Is there a way to get frx with newer FR version - eg. 4.15?
Thank you.

Thank you.

4.15 was released on 04 July 2014. How could Sergey software could have that working? Or was something that did work on the past and on next releases got broken?
BTW, we have made some important modifications on FR software and it has important work on our side to move to a newest version. We will surely do the upgrade, but I can not give you a time frame for that. Sorry.

These are the versions:
Sergey FR version = 4.12.1
FRX FR Version = 4.13.1
Latest FR4 Version = 4.15
The issue could be that embedded PNG images from 4.12 are somehow unreadable with 4.13, and on FR support forum we got answer that they work fine with 4.15.

Thank you for clarifying that.
