I have an example app on my website that captures a control/window/screen to a bitmap blob so it can be written to a .bmp file or put in the clipboard.

It works great in PB versions 8 through 12.5 but 12.6 and 2017 fail silently. I end up with a valid bitmap that is all white.

This link is to a PB 12.5 app that shows off the problem. It captures a picture control to a blob and then loads the blob into an InkPicture control. 


Here is a link to the example app:


I am probably going to submit as a bug to Appeon. If anyone out there can help pinpoint the problem I would appreciate it.

One of our failed users updated bios and now can execute 64 bit PB apps

Hi Roland;

   I would definitely suggest opening up a Support Ticket for this issue. Especially, since you already have an excellent Test Case in hand.

Regards ... Chris

I added it. It would be nice if that link were on one of the menus at the top of the page instead of down on the bottom of the page.
