When you close Microsoft Draw, you may receive an error message telling you that there is not enough memory to store the data left in the Clipboard.


When you close Microsoft Draw, it uses different formats in an attempt to render the data in the Clipboard. The error noted above occurs because Microsoft Draw attempts to use a 16-bit driver to render the image. Windows on Windows (WOW) does not support 16-bit drivers.

NOTE: Even though you receive the error noted above, the image is placed in the Clipboard in the CF_BITMAP format.
