What causes "generic errors"?

Postby cbdebris on Fri Feb 05, 2010 11:54 am

Trying to generate output and encounter "A generic error occurred in GDI+."

What causes this? How to circumvent it?

Are you running this on Windows 7? If yes, that is why there generic GDI+ error comes from. In the end it is a permissions issue, which in the end is a Windows design flaw.

I got the same error when compiling a Flare project. I had created a new TOC and Target by making copies of another (which did not get the error).
The got rid of the error by creating a new TOC and Target from scratch. Fortunately, the TOC didn't have 150 entries. Still don't know what caused the error but at least I could get past it.

Normally this error is caused by an image.

This works for me:

Open the build log of the build that failed.
Open the tab "Messages"
Scroll down to the end. The image causing the error is located in the last processed topic file that is mentioned in the messages list before the error is thrown. Normally this image isn 't mentioned after the topics name.
Open the topic file and delete the first image from the topic that has not been mentioned in the messages of the build log.
Try building the target again.
Rename the image and reinsert it in the topic. If this not works create this image new.
No Success:
Try the next image of this topic
