Thomas, I believe the GetMetaFile function is for WMF metafiles.  

The counterpart for EMF (enhanced) metafiles is GetEnhMetafile.

HTH.

So far so god,  but then why do i get  the return value of zero when i use that function in my application.
My application is running on NT4.
Additional information: I am porting code from 16-bit to 32-bit.

I'm not sure.  When I get to the office tomorrow I'll write a sample app and run it on NT4.  (I only have Win95 here at home.)

I'll let you know how it goes.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Sorry, Thomas.  I'll e-mail myself a reminder to look at it tomorrow and I'll e-mail you the sample app.  Make sure you post your e-mail address and I'll send you the code tomorrow.

Ken.

Thomas,

It seems that you can't use "GetMetaFile" with placeable metafiles.  Though you can use it with .WMF metafiles, they can not be placeable.

I have a routine that will load a metafile... but if you have Dan Appleman's "VB Programmer's Guide to the Win32 API" it's in there also.  It's in the QuikDraw.BAS file... and it's called "LoadTheMetafile".  It should work in both 16 and 32-bit code.

Cheers!

Hello kswinney !

If you don't mind please send me the routine that will load a metafile... I do not have Dan Appleman's "VB Programmer's Guide to the Win32 API" yet.
