BMP or JPG image inserted in sketch appears blank and gray

I have one Inventor Pro 2012 SP1 user who is trying to insert a bmp image into a sketch so he can create a decal and the image appears blank and gray.  See the attached screen capture.  We converted the bmp to a jpg and we get the same result.  When I insert the bmp into a sketch on my workstation and it views correctly.  I've logged into the same workstation as the user who is having the problem and the image also views correctly.   I tried to change the file associaiton from Microsoft Picture View to Paint and I get the same result.

 

Does anyone have any idea about who could be causing this issue? 

 

Here are his workstation specs:

 

Dell Precision T5400 - Xeon Quad Core - 2.93 GHz

Windows XP SP2 - x32

4 GB RAM

Nvidia Quadro FX 570

Autodesk Product Design Suite 2012 - Ultimate

It sounds like his profile may be the issue.

Sometimes you just need a good old reboot.

Is his account a Windows "power user" or greater? It should be..

He was a Power User originally.  I changed him to an admin and had him try it again and it did not help.
