    Default And this is progress

    I wanted to create a little POC (proof of concept) for a plan B idea.
    Out comes mingw, gtk+ and off I toddle. With a little help from VectraMan on some GDI specifics I'm good to go.

    I juuuuuuuuuuuuuust need to load that little memory resident bitmap into something visible, like a picture box. Goddit, GTK_Image widget. Great. How do I load a memory resident bitmap into a GKT_Widget....

    Googles......
    Googles......
    Posts in GTK+ Forum.....
    Googles......

    After a day and half, thinks ok frak it. If open sores means no documentation and piss poor help from the forums I'll go the MS route.

    Downloads VC++ 2008 Express edition.
    Installs it. "You need to register your product"
    Registers it. "Thanks, we will email you your details"

    Waits....

    Email arrives

    No frakin registration key, so VC++ 2008 Express is totally unusable.

    So in this day and age, to try and create a simple POC is a chore in itself.

    10 years ago I'd have knocked a POC out in 5 minutes flat with VB6 FFS

    And this is progress.

    I tried to do something for free. It's hard when you don't get any support so I decided to pay for it. Even when I pay for it, support and a working program are not forthcoming.

    I am frustrated.

    Your PoC for Plan B failed.

    Start over.

    Find a new reason to load a memory resident bitmap into a GKT_Widget...

    I've replied to you about VSE registration over in Technical, if you want to have a look.

    Doesn't VSE run for 30 days without registration? VSWDE always had that option for me.

    It does. I had a previous install so it seems. I uninstalled and reinstalled. No difference. Over to technical I go. Dum de dum de dum ....
