Honestly, I have been adding features and support for various OLE objects over the last year or so. Check the source code for the latest supported objects.
BETA 1.75 Feb 06/2006
Fixed Bitmap DWORD alignment issue. Added support for both 8 bit color and Greyscale embedded images. Added support for MS Photo Scan files. Fixed numerous bitmap related logic bugs. This version has worked on every single OLE image object embedded by supported apps that users have sent me to test. If I told you previously I would not support your image type I lied...they are all now supported. ListBox selections now only show supported tables/fields. Cleaned and commented code. This will be the last Beta release as I believe I have swatted all of the major and minor bugs. It has not crashed once in several days.<grin>
BETA 1.65 Jan 30/2006
Added support for embedded Picture objects. These are objects of type OT_STATIC. Can be either DIB or METAFILEPICT. Convert METAFILEPICT to Bitmap file. Moved calls to Load/Free Library out of conversion process so now only called once. Started to clean and comment code. Should have a production release within one or two more revisions. Next release will convert standard code module to Class to aid in error handling, ease of use and ability to add features..
