BUG: StretchDIBits Faults on 24-BPP PM-Style DIBs


3.00 3.10 WINDOWS kbprg kbbuglist

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows versions 3.0, 3.1


StretchDIBits faults inside GDI when passed a 24-bpp Presentation Manager (PM) style device-independent bitmap (DIB) on a device that supports RC_STRETCHDIB.


GDI must convert the old style BITMAPCOREINFO structure into a new BITMAPINFO structure before passing it to a driver's RC_STRETCHDIB function. If the old style DIB has no color table, GDI will fault as it attempts to append a zero-length color table to the end of its temporary BITMAPINFOHEADER.


On devices that support RC_STRETCHDIB, do the conversion into the new style DIB format for GDI before calling into it when using 24-bpp PM-sytle DIBs.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.
