Error: A Generic Error occurred in GDI+

Hi Dear,

Here I am trying to upload a photo.

  1. protected void LoadImage()        {
  2.             string UserName = Session["UserName"].ToString();
  4.             byte[] Data = Profile.GetImageData(UserName); //Stmt Correct where profile is class
  6.             if (Data != null)
  7.             {
  8.                 MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream(Data);
  10.                 Bitmap bitmap = null;
  11.                 bitmap = new Bitmap(stream);
  13.                 bitmap.Save(Server.MapPath(@"~\UserPhoto.bmp"), system.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp); 
  14.                 //Error:A Generic   Error occurred in GDI+            
  15.                 bitmap.Dispose();
  16.                 imgPhoto.ImageUrl = @"~\UserPhoto.bmp";            }     }

I think the problem occurs while opening up your virtual directory as you have earlier used Server.MapPath( );

TIP: When you are writing your question, there is a button on the tool bar that wraps the [code] tags around your copy/pasted code. It helps a bunch. Its the button with a '#' on it. More on tags. They're cool. Check'em out.

  1. bitmap.Save(Server.MapPath(@"~\UserPhoto.bmp"), system.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp);
I don't see any error checking.
What if you don't have write permissions to the directory?
What if an image of that name already exists in the directory?
Are you sure the MapPath function with that string literal is valid and not something like: Server\Userfold er\~\UserPhoto. bmp

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
