unsupported operation was attempted

Hi,

I am trying to load in a set of images dynamically at runtime.

I have set message box's to display the path and name of the file has it loads (for testing) and the strings are correct and relevant to the executable.

But I keep getting an: 'unsupported operation was attempted' error.

Anyone help us out?

Thanks in advance.

     CDialog::OnInitDialog();
     
     // Set image box images
     
     CString Pic = "";
     CString PicCopy = "";
     
     CString Level = "";
     CString Stage = "";
     
     Level.Format("images\\Level%d",LevelNumber);

     Stage.Format("\\Pic%d",StageNumber);

     PicCopy = Pic;

     Pic += (CString)Level + "\\Pic1.bmp";

     m_Pic1.SetBitmap((HBITMAP)LoadImage(NULL,Pic,
     IMAGE_BITMAP,125,125,LR_DEFAULTCOLOR|LR_DEFAULTSIZE|LR_LOADFROMFILE|LR_CREATEDIBSECTION));
     m_Pic7.SetBitmap((HBITMAP)LoadImage(NULL,Pic,
     IMAGE_BITMAP,125,125,LR_DEFAULTCOLOR|LR_DEFAULTSIZE|LR_LOADFROMFILE|LR_CREATEDIBSECTION));

     MessageBox(CString(Pic));
     
     Pic = PicCopy;

     Pic += (CString)Level + "\\Pic2.bmp";

     m_Pic2.SetBitmap((HBITMAP)LoadImage(NULL,Pic,
     IMAGE_BITMAP,125,125,LR_DEFAULTCOLOR|LR_DEFAULTSIZE|LR_LOADFROMFILE|LR_CREATEDIBSECTION));
     m_Pic8.SetBitmap((HBITMAP)LoadImage(NULL,Pic,
     IMAGE_BITMAP,125,125,LR_DEFAULTCOLOR|LR_DEFAULTSIZE|LR_LOADFROMFILE|LR_CREATEDIBSECTION));

     MessageBox(CString(Pic));

     Pic = PicCopy;

     Pic += (CString)Level + "\\Pic3.bmp";

     m_Pic3.SetBitmap((HBITMAP)LoadImage(NULL,Pic,
     IMAGE_BITMAP,125,125,LR_DEFAULTCOLOR|LR_DEFAULTSIZE|LR_LOADFROMFILE|LR_CREATEDIBSECTION));
     m_Pic9.SetBitmap((HBITMAP)LoadImage(NULL,Pic,
     IMAGE_BITMAP,125,125,LR_DEFAULTCOLOR|LR_DEFAULTSIZE|LR_LOADFROMFILE|LR_CREATEDIBSECTION));

     MessageBox(CString(Pic));

     Pic = PicCopy;

     Pic += (CString)Level + "\\Pic4.bmp";

I didn't get ur problem but I have one advice If U don't mind .
U r using CString call casting in many areas of this much code( actualy no need for that ).

MessageBox(CString(Pic));

pic is already a CString object so why ur using
CString(Pic) ???????

Where are you getting the error?
Do you get it on every run?

Also, you should use AfxMessageBox();
