Do you use the LoadBitmap from the CBitmap class
or the LoadBitmap from the Win32 API ?

LoadBitmap is NOT for loading a bitmap from a file!
It for laoding a bitmap from a resource.
Resource workshop -> insert new resource -> bitmap ( ID: e.g. IDB_BITMAP1 )
load the bitmap:
CBitmap bmp;
bmp.LoadBitmap(IDB_BITMAP1);


if you want to load a bitmap from a file look at
http://www.codeguru.com/bitmap/index.shtml
for sample code and bitmap classes.
Or take a look at the MFC sample Diblook.

In order to load a bitmap, i have to use the CFile class.
On the Web site, there is a sample to write a bitmap in a file :

I think the one you are searching for is
http://www.codeguru.com/bitmap/draw_bmp.shtml
shows the drawing of bitmaps from BMP files.
