Blitting problems on win98

My application has a custom UI like that of winamp.  What I do is blit to a DC them flip it to the HDC of my window.  This works great on win2000/xp but when I test the program on win98 the window turns black after a minute.  I have run boundschecker and cannot find any resource leaks or errors.  I'm pretty much using the C API's and have checked them all for compatibility and they seem fine.  Is there anything I'm missing here?

Are you sure that the video settings of both 2000 and 98 are similar ?
Maybe the black screen is caused by a video setting difference (including extra technologies installed like directx etc.)

If the environment is similar you would need to post the code so we could take a look at what you do.

Mafalda,

I'm not using DX just API's  here is the code.  it's called from a timer callback.



void CApplication::DrawBG()

Ok, I figured it out .. this seems to work on 98...

hOldBit = (HBITMAP)::SelectObject(m_BitmapDC,hBitmapTopLeft);

     RECT rDraw;
     rDraw.left = 0;
     rDraw.top =0;
     rDraw.bottom = BitmapSizeTopLeft.cy;
     rDraw.right = BitmapSizeTopLeft.cx;
     
     
     ::BitBlt(     m_hDC,//     pDC,
                    0,
                    0,
                    BitmapSizeTopLeft.cx,
                    BitmapSizeTopLeft.cy,
                    m_BitmapDC,                        
                    0, 0,
                    SRCCOPY);    
     
     /* WORKS ON 98 */

     ::SelectObject(m_BitmapDC,hOldBit);
     ::DeleteObject(hBitmapTopLeft);
