Machine : Pentium 166 Mhz, 64MB SDRAM

Env      : Win 95
        24 bit Screen Resolution
        800 * 600 Display Resolution

Compiler: Visual C++ 5.0


I failed to create a 24 bit Device Dependent bitmap
of more than 2400 * 2400 size. I tried with following
functions

CreateBitmap
CreateCompatibleBitmap
CreateDIBitmap( after creating DIB of required size )

Could you please tell me why this is happening, and do
you have any solutions.

This gives a bitmap of 16.48 megabytes.

Checking the doc for the WIN32 CreateBitmap and CreateCompatibleBitmap calls you can read this:
Windows 95/98: The created bitmap cannot exceed 16MB in size.

That is your answer. Try your code under NT, you should not have any problems. If you do check the GetLastError() return code.
