Loading vector graphics Compact Framework

Using the Compact Framework in VB.NET 2005, I want to use a big WMF vector graphic (1500 * 1300 pixels) to draw rectangles on. Currently I open the graphic into a picturebox. The technique I use, however, does that the WMF is always converted to a Bitmap and then displayed in the picturebox. It is no longer a vector graphic but just a bitmap. This takes a lot of memory in use.

My coding:
      Dim MyImage As System.Drawing.Bitmap
      MyImage = New Bitmap(….filename…..)
      g2 = Graphics.FromImage(MyImage)
      picturebox1.Image = CType(MyImage, Image)

How do I load it as a WMF vector graphic and use it as a vector graphic? Is there perhaps an alternative for the PictureBox in VB.NET in Compact Framework?.

vector graphics are not supported by the compact framework. Maybe QT has it, but it's C++.

OK, thanks.
So if I use a graphic / PictureBox under the Compact Framework, it will always be converted to a bitmap? Is there another way to prevent this?
