I'm trying to convert HTML Text to a .bmp image. I'm using the following code for performing the operation.

Bitmap m_Bitmap = new Bitmap(400, 600);
PointF point = new PointF(0, 0);
SizeF maxSize = new System.Drawing.SizeF(500, 500);

HtmlRenderer.HtmlRender.Render(Graphics.FromImage(m_Bitmap), "<html><head></head><body><p>This is a sh*tty html code</p><p>This is another html line</p></body>", point, maxSize);


"HtmlRenderer" is an external namespace that is being used here. However, I'm getting an exception at the "m_Bitmap.Save(@"C:\Test.bmp");" line that says : A generic error occured in GDI+.

I'm unable to understand why this exception is being raised when the same code is running perfectly in my colleague's system.

Please help. Thanks a lot.

Solved. As I was trying to save the image in the root directory (C:\), the program had to have admin privileges. I missed out on that earlier. When I ran the program with admin rights, it worked as expected.
