A generic error occurred in GDI+.

April 13th, 2012

Are you getting this error when you try to save an Image to your disk somewhere?  I was getting this very “Generic” error when I was trying to write a Bitmap out to my hard drive using Windows 7.  I was just trying to write it to C:\temp\test.bmp and it was throwing this error up which didn’t tell me a thing.  It turns out that the error is masking the real error, which looks to be some kind of permissions error, so if you just change it to either save it to another drive or even another folder, this error should go away.  I hope this helps someone else out there struggling with this issue.
