Well, that's really weird!  For some reason it posted two answers... Please don't accept or reject this.  I am going to get Customer Service to look at this question and find out why...


Anyhow, back to your question, once you use the code in the above microsoft article to capture the window into a picturebox, you can save the picturebox to a BMP by using the SavePicture function...

Yes, there seems to be a problem alright. As long as you can bring up the window from which you posted an answer or a comment, you can do it again and again. Similarly, you can add comments to a deleted question as long as you've still got a window showing the question as it was before it got deleted.
