See Plusplus! See Plusplus run! Run Plusplus run! (>_<)

Hey! Smart people! My luck has run out. MSDN, cplusplus, StackOverflow, and various other sites can’t seem to help me. (>_<)

Here goes: I have bitmap resources embedded in my x86 executable. I have them properly defined as resources. I have very similar code in another project for WinCE6. But, when I try to load my image resources, I keep getting error 1814(0x716)! (._.)

resources.rc

#include "resources.h"

IDB_BITMAP1 BITMAP "tpcn.bmp"
IDB_BITMAP2 BITMAP "red.bmp"
IDB_BITMAP3 BITMAP "blu.bmp"
IDB_BITMAP4 BITMAP "grn.bmp"
IDB_BITMAP5 BITMAP "pat.bmp"

resources.h

#ifndef RESOURCES_H
#define RESOURCES_H

#ifndef IDC_STATIC
#define IDC_STATIC      -1
#endif

#define IDI_CSICO       101

#define IDB_BITMAP1    201
#define IDB_BITMAP2    202
#define IDB_BITMAP3    203
#define IDB_BITMAP4    204
#define IDB_BITMAP5    205

#endif // RESOURCES_H

The snippet of code that fails. (T_T)

	HBITMAP image = (HBITMAP)LoadImage(NULL, MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDB_BITMAP1), IMAGE_BITMAP, 0, 0, LR_DEFAULTCOLOR);
	if (image == NULL) printf("Failure Loading Bitmap %i", GetLastError());

I’m using GNU GCC as my compiler. It does compile. It does run. But, it does always print that “Failure” line I stuck in there. (._.)

    Update:

    The peeps at SLU gave me a line that works! =^-^=
    HBITMAP image = (HBITMAP)LoadImage(GetModuleHandle(NULL), MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDB_BITMAP1), IMAGE_BITMAP, 0, 0, LR_DEFAULTCOLOR);
