When you use the Application Verifier (AppVerifier) runtime verification tool to test a Microsoft GDI+ program, you experience many first chance exception errors. Additionally, the GDI+ program may close unexpectedly.
To work around this problem, turn off exceptions testing in Application Verifier. To do this, follow these steps:
The GIF codec in GDI+ 1.0 encodes GDI+ images that have 256 or fewer colors (8 bits per pixel). The GIF codec uses exception error information when the GIF codec decodes these GIF images. Therefore, you may experience many breaks when you use Application Verifier to test a GDI+ program that uses the GIF codec.
Steps to reproduce the problemThe following code is an example of GDI+ code that causes this problem.
