I made an example app that loads a bitmap from a resource fine
public class Form1 : Form
	 * Normal window form stuff here

	protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs ea)
		pictureBox1.Image = new Bitmap(GetType(),"myBitmapResource.bmp");
	static void Main() {Application.Run(new Form1());}

And the myBitmapResource.bmp is set to EmbeddedResource on the properties. Now when I did exactly the same on my other app which has multiple classes, it said it couldn't find myBitmapResource.bmp in Form1. You usually get this error if the bitmap isnt set to EmbeddedResource, but mine is. You also get it if the resource isnt in that form, but how can I tell where the image is in order to load it.
