    Problems using .mifdef files


    I have a .mifdef file with two images, one .svg and the other .bmp. For some reason BMCONV does not like the bmp image. (See console output below)

    I am using the standard helloworld project and adding the image 'background.bmp' from the ScalableScreenDrawing sample project from Forum Nokia. I have tried different settings for the bmp file, but nothing seems to work.

    Any ideas?

    Re: Problems using .mifdef files


    Looks like there is a blank missing in /c24C:\Workspace\HelloWorld\gfx\background.bmp after the /C24. You could try to edit the file in a normal text editor (ourside the IDE) and then check if recompilation (Rebuild) would work?
