I am trying to load BitMap from resource with next Delphi2 code:


      {$R Resource}

          Bitmap := TBitmap.Create;
          Bitmap.LoadFromResourceName(HInstance, 'Bitmap1');


But I am getting message:

      "Resource BITMAP1 not found."

What have I done wrong?

This is ok
      Bitmap := TBitmap.Create;
      Bitmap.LoadFromResourceName(HInstance, 'Bitmap1');

Two possibility :
1) {$R Resource}   it's not the good one
2) your resource.res file don't have the Bitmap1 in .

Also Verify that your resource file doesn't have the same name as your application as Delphi will overwrite that to add the main Icon, version information etc.
