loading bitmaps on windows 98

it happens that, when i dinamically try to load a bitmap with the "CStatic::SetBitmap" instruction, it returns succesful on windows 2000. if i operate on windows 98 it fails because the bitmap never change. how can i do? is that a problem of service pack or there is no way to solve the problem? thanks

Please show your code. What does this mean "bitmap never change"?

CBitmap bmpDiagn;
switch(value)
{
case 0:
    if(bmpDiagn.LoadBitmap(IDB_DIAG_0))
        ((CStatic*)GetDlgItem(IDC_BMP_DIAGN))->SetBitmap((HBITMAP)bmpDiagn);
    break;
case 1:
    if(bmpDiagn.LoadBitmap(IDB_DIAG_1))
        ((CStatic*)GetDlgItem(IDC_BMP_DIAGN))->SetBitmap((HBITMAP)bmpDiagn);
    break;
case 2:
    if(bmpDiagn.LoadBitmap(IDB_DIAG_2))
        ((CStatic*)GetDlgItem(IDC_BMP_DIAGN))->SetBitmap((HBITMAP)bmpDiagn);
    break;
}

even if "value" is 0, then 1, then 2, the bitmap always shows the image statically assigned with "Picture Properties". on window 2000 the same code allows to change the 3 images...

Attention: Like this you have  a memory leak: SetBitmap returns the old HBITMAP and this should be freed with ::DestroyObject ().

Have you looked whether the load was succesfull under Win98?

try this:

static CBitmap bmpDiagn;  // or otherwise make it persist
...etc...

That CBitbap destructs at the end of the fn.  That means it releases its handle.  I don't know why it would work in one OS but not another, but there you go.

If that doesn't work, see if dragging another window over the dialog (and thus forcing a redraw) causes the new bitmap to be displayed.  If so, then use Invalidate() on the STATIC control.
