I have an .rtf file and there is an image in it. When I open that with MSWord it show image properly, but with WordPad it show a yellow rectangle instead. What's the problem?

I think you'll find that WordPad probably just does not support that feature of .rft files. It's designed as a very basic word processing tool without many additional features.


WordPad natively supports the Rich Text Format, though it does not support all the features defined in the RTF/Word 2007 specification.
