bannerbitmap size

Hi,
What would be the size for the bannerbitmap in Setup and Deployment Project in Visual Studio .NET so that it wouldn't be distorted when being displayed in the dialogs at runtime?
Thanks,

I think it should be 497 pixels wide by 68 high.

I tried it, but it still didn't display correctly. I was wondering if it depends on the resolution as well?

It shouldn't make any difference.
What specifically is the problem when the image is displayed ?

Remarks
This property is set in the Select Item in Project dialog box. You must add the file containing the bitmap to the project in order for it to be available in the Select Item in Project dialog box.

For best results, you should use a bitmap with dimensions of 500 pixels wide by 70 pixels high. Bitmaps with different dimensions will be stretched or shrunk to fit and may appear distorted.

Note   The BannerBitmap appears behind any BannerText in the dialog box; depending on text length, the text may cover up to the first 420 pixels of the bitmap.
