When I save a Windows bitmap for use as a resource (toolbar button) in a program I am developing, it shows up in the program in a jumbled state. It works fine within PMView, but not as a resource. I haven't done bit comparisons, but if you like, I can email you both the PMView and the VC++ versions of the same bitmap. Is there any known workaround in this version?

This is a known problem. When writing Windows bitmaps, PMView writes an incorrect size in the "bitmap size" field (this is actually an incompatibility between the OS/2 and Windows format that I had not noticed until recently).

There is no workaround. The problem will be fixed in Service Release 1. (PMView v2.01)
