Unsupported Picture Format (Trial limitation?)

We're evaluating TRichView for converting from RVF to DOCX.
And we're running into the issue that loading an RVF results in a Unsupported Picture Format. (we have tried various demo projects that come with the TRichView installer)

However, opening the RVF file with the COMPILED Demo's available on the TRichView website, the image gets loaded correctly.

Could it be due to the TRIAL edition of TRichView that we are having this issue ?
Or perhaps due to the fact that we are building with Delphi 5 ? (we can't use the free Delphi community edition because TRichView does not support XE10)
Or is there another reason?

We would like to know the exact reason, before purchasing TRichView.

This RVF file contains 2 images, from wich one is Unsupported Picture Format:

1) TRichView supports Delphi 10. As well as Delphi 10.1, 10.2, 10.3. Everything is included in TRichView trial, so you can test TRichView in new versions of Delphi.

2) Your file contains PNG and JPEG image.
In Delphi 5, JPEG images are supported, because Delphi 5 includes TJPEGImage class.
However, Delphi 5 does not include support for PNG images. But you can use a free third-party class. See

Xe10 solved all our issues.
Thank you Sergey!
