Let's look at the problem differently. Since the images are geo-referenced could you make them a layer in MGE?

In other words could you make a copy of them from wherever they currently sit and serve them up as a map via MGE, keeping the images in a folder on the MGE Server?

Basically you could open a new window when the user clicks the point and execute a GetMap request to the MGE Server and have it return a map image based on another map you configure in MGE. No other viewer is needed locally and you don't download the whole file, just a set of coordinates around the location the user has selected determines the image being returned and you can set your own scale and window size. This bypasses the indexing of the SHP file so I don't know if this would get you what you need, but it might be worth investigating. 

Otherwise you path references in the data probably need to be UNC based rather than mapped drive for anything else to work.

Dave, the only problem with downloading these files is he size.  Each scanned
image is around 90 megabytes, which is why I'm trying to create this viewer
so everyone won't have to download them.

P.s.  The viewer I'm creating is also housing geo-referenced aerials, center
lines, etc, not just the scanned aerials.
