REGION.BMP cannot be embedded or linked as a Paintbrush object in a general field, and it cannot be printed in a FoxPro for Windows report using the Picture tool.
REGION.BMP is of a different format than the other bitmap files that are included in FoxPro's TUTORIAL and GOODIES subdirectories. For example, when you attempt to open this file in Paintbrush, the following error message appears:
Therefore, when you attempt to link or embed REGION.BMP as a Paintbrush object in a general field in FoxPro 2.x, the "Error creating OLE object" message appears. In Visual FoxPro, the error message "OLE error code 0x800401fe : Application was launched but didn't register a class factory" appears.
There are three different types of .BMP files: OS/2, RGB, and RLE. Paintbrush supports the OS/2 and RGB formats but not RLE-encoded .BMP files.
Using the Report Writer Picture tool, you can place REGION.BMP on a report and view it in page preview; however, a blank space will appear on the printed output where the bitmap should be.
