When you compile a graphic file specified under the "Installation Interface Attribute," the following message appears:

The graphic file does not contain a valid header. Please check if this is a valid bitmap file.


The Systems Management Server Installer does not allow you to compile graphics files other than bitmap (.bmp) files. This is by design.


To work around this problem, convert the graphic file to a bitmap before compiling it.
