Error: $ghGDIPDll: undeclared global variable

Recommended Posts


Hey everyone, I have been searching for an answer to this issue and cannot seem to figure out what I am missing... :mad:

A little background... I created, compiled, and have this application fully functioning on an old laptop. I was recently upgraded to a new laptop and now I cannot build anymore due to the below error/warning.

I am including the ColorChooser UDF (linked below); but it would seem I am either missing a file or some other resource.

Obviously I could just declare this variable to resolve my error, but that doesn't seem like the correct solution to me. Any suggestions?

Error Messages:

That constant was renamed as $__g_hGDIPDll some time ago.

This has been discussed a few times before. So the search feature of the forum would have provided the solution in a few seconds I believe ;)
