Getting Access denied Error

Post by xhunter » Mon Feb 23, 2009 11:35 pm

Here is an exe file from Windows Mobile (Pocket PC) devices,

http://www.easy-share.com/1903774283/gwes.exe

I don't think the file is compressed.

everything is fine except for some of the images which either return :

Code: Select all

System Error.  Code: 5.
Access is denied
OR

Code: Select all

System Error.  Code: 1447.
The window does not have scroll bars

I've found the cause. These images use 4 colors (2 bits per pixel). That format is only available for Windows Mobile, and a regular Windows cannot display these images (unless converted first).

As a first step, I've fixed Restorator's internal image handling to support 4 color images. But it's still impossible to view them. Saving should be fine though (with the next version of Restorator). Also the error message will be more meaningful :)

In future, we may add a converter so that these images can be displayed nonetheless.

Regards,
Florian
