CreateCompatibleBitmap returns NULL whenever I use bitmaps greater than
around 16 megs. What can I do?. Please, help would be much appreciated.
Windows 95 does not support traditional bitmaps larger than 16MB.
Instead of CreateCompatibleBitmap, try creating a DIB section,
which doesn't have a 16MB limit.
DIB sections are cool for a lot of other reasons, too. For
example, you are allowed to access the bits of a DIB section

CreateCompatibleBitmap returns NULL when ever I am using a bitmap greater
than around 16 megs. What do I do? Help would be much appreciated.
