Microsoft visual - update image bug

Firstly let me say that I know nothing about microsoft visual studio. An ex collague of mine however, built a browser in C++ and there are two images used by the browser that I am trying to update.

They are two small .bmp images. When I swap them in the project folder for new images that I've created, giving them the same dimensions and file names, and then try to run the project, I get the following message: microsoft visual studio c runtime library has detected a fatal error

When I replace the original images into the project folder, and run the project, it works fine.

Am I missing something?

- What version of Visual Studio are you using?  6.0?  2003?  2005?

You should also make sure that the bitmaps are of the same bit depth; I think you can get away with up to 24bit, but check the current/new bit depth via the file properties in Windows Explorer and ensure they are the same.

first you should see it at the size. a deeper bit depth should lead to a significant growth of file size.

you also should find a menu in photoshop where the bit depth can be seen and changed.

you should try to open the bitmap file in visual studio. if it can't open it in the resource editor photoshop perhaps has added some new features to the file whcih you would need to remove using a different tool or using a different way of storing mode in photoshop.

>> you should try to open the bitmap file in visual studio.

Not all bitmaps will open in the resource editor, even though they have been correctly loaded.  

>> How do I check that?

As I said in my first post,

"check the current/new bit depth via the file properties in Windows Explorer and ensure they are the same".  

Right click file->select properties, have a look at the Summary tab and report the bit depth please.

Both files are identical:

64 x 66 px
24 - bit depth
12.4kb

is the size in bytes also identically?

can you open the second bitmap with resource editor?

if not you may compare them with Visual Studio hex editor.
