I’m trying to upgrade a VC6.0 project to VS2010 and replace the menubar and toolbars to Prof-UIS.  I created a new small MFC project just to testout the procedure first.  However, I keep getting assertions relating to extpaintmanager.cpp at Line 264 ...and all the lines having to validate the following line of code.


I know it’s probably somewhere in my setup, something simple, but I just can’t figure out what’s missing.  Please help~ \Thanks,

We need a memory DC for clipping. If you need faster text output into a big area, please use the DT_NOCLIP flag.

Did you put the following lines into .rc2 file of your project?

#if ( !(defined _AFXDLL && !defined __STATPROFUIS_WITH_DLLMFC__) )
    #include <Resources/Resource.rc>

Hi, yes I did put those lines already.

So far it only works if I compile under MFC static link and static use of Prof-UIS (ProfUIS291sud.lib) or both using dll option (ProfUIS291ud.lib).

Is there something extra I need to setup if I want to have dynamic link to MFC but static use of Prof-UIS? In the possible configurations I thought we

can use ProfUIS291yud.lib?  That’s when I was getting assertion errors.  Any ideas?

You should only include Prof-UIS.h file into your StdAfx.h file. If you should use static Prof-UIS with dynamic MFC, then you should define the __STATPROFUIS_WITH_DLLMFC__ preprocessor symbol in your project settings. Please read this article:

I had define __STATPROFUIS_WITH_DLLMFC__ before, the program was trying to pick up ProfUIS291yud.lib which I already compiled.

I had no problem compiling but it keeps throwing asserts whenever it goes into extPaintManager.cpp:


I read the article many times before I post my question... just not sure what else I was doing incorrectly.

The problem with an early loaded IDB_EXT_BITMAP_FILTER_APPLIED bitmap resource in the constructor method is solved in Prof-UIS 2.92 where this bitmap is loaded with a delay. Please switch to 2.92.

I made a little bit of progress by setting static link to MFC with MTd and it works. 

However, I need to have dynamic link to MFC and use Prof-UIS as static lib, so I should be using ProfUIS291yud.lib, right? 

I put #define __STATPROFUIS_WITH_DLLMFC__ in the stdafx.h to turn on the ’y’ flag and the compilation went ok, but it would still fail when calling InstallPaintManager. 

What did I do wrong...?
