Hi

I am using Plato and I am having trouble with my resource script. This file, LV_Resources.rc, contains only one line:

LV_Map BITMAP Deutschland_Map.bmp

When this is compiled this error-message occurs:


    Compiling file LV_Resources.rc using SRC.
    [Silverfrost SRC/WIN32 Ver 4.60 Copyright (c) Silverfrost Ltd 2022]
    Access violation:

    1001884e movb dl,[ecx]

    10018850 movb [ebp-0x15],dl

    Compilation completed with no errors.


Linking failed due to the missing LV_resources.obj-file.

What was wrong? The 24-bit-bitmap is in the same directory as the program code.

Cheers
Norbert

There is nothing obviously wrong with what you are doing. Perhaps the bmp file is corrupt. Off hand I don't know if the resource compiler needs to read the file.

You could put the bmp file on DropBox and send a link. Then I could test it out.

Thanks Paul,

here is the link to my dropbox.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/x21fb8axxjadegt/Deutschland_Map.bmp?dl=0

The image shows fine in any grafik display software like paint or gimp.

Cheers

I have found the resource compiler very picky about syntax.

In the example below, because spaces are in the file name, it has to be in quotes, AND all the backslashes have to be doubles.

greensquare bitmap z:\cmasterf95\green16check.bmp
cjdwp bitmap "z:\\CMASTERF95\\BMP and Icons\\cjd_color_splashbw.bmp"

I can confirm that SRC fails for this bmp file.

I will log this for investigation.

Okay, thank you.

Some additional information: This file was created with gimp (GNU Image manipulation program). Just now I triedd all available options (24 bit, 32 bit, colorinformation included or not) all with the same result. And the same result with using Paint from MS.

It may be a little while before this can be sorted out. My first thought is to wonder if the failure only occurs when the file size is very large. At the moment it looks like I will need to send you a new SRC.exe.

As a temporary work-around you could read the bitmap directly from the file. For example:

iw = winio@("%bm[{Deutschland_Map.bmp}]")

There are also other contexts where you can use curly brackets in order to read a resource directly from a file.

I can confirm that resource space is limited to 10 million bytes. We will work to increase that.
