Yes, I created these in 2.8.4 and they were loadable in the default viewer on
Windows7 which is
"Windows Photo Viewer".
However, I installed 2.4.7, and it cannot read these files.
The "LoadImage()" API function call in windows fails to read these files.
My creation is:
new image
size 5x5
color space rgb color
fill with transparency
A bit of drawing and then export to .bmp.
Thanks, ... what other .bmp viewers should I try?  (maybe browsers)
