Here is a sequence :
1.Create compatible memory device ( for dialog box or printer ) - see CreateCompatibleDevice documentation

2.Read the BMP file

3.Create compatible bitmap ( CreateCompatibleBitmap ) and initialize it with the data read from the file

4.Select the bitmap into the device you have created in the step 1 - see SelectObject

Now you have bitmap selected in the invisible device context - and you are free to do anything with it - even sending to printer .

Hope it helps ,
Oleg
