#1047 header bitmap is exposed on welcome page


If you take focus from the wizard and drag other windows on top of it, something turns the header image bitmap visible on the welcome page.

This happens and is reproducible on other systems (I have tested it), however it is an occasional occurrence so it might not be apparent on first try.

1. NSIS version 2.46 on Windows 7 32-bit
2. None
3. Any script with MUI or MUI2 that provides a custom header image
4. None

    I've attached a screenshot of the issue along with an easier way to reproduce the problem.

    1. Start up the installer and leave on welcome page.
    2. Click a shortcut link on the desktop (try with shortcuts to other folder).

    Does it happen to the official 2.46 installer? If not, please provide a minimal script so I can test...

    There doesn't appear to be any difference between my script and the official installer aside from the images being PNGs rather than BMPs and the header image is displayed on the left in the official while mine is on the right.

    And no. I will not provide a minimal script. But, I will tell what to include in your own minimal test script.

    1. include header + side images
    2. make sure header image is on right side
    3. make sure images are PNGs
    4. MUI or MUI2

    And steps to recreate the glitch are described in my first comment.

    I think the image has to be a BMP so please use a plain bitmap image and see if that fixes it. (I'm guessing NSIS calls LoadImage at some point and the fact that a PNG loads at all is surprising to me and probably does not work on all Windows versions)

    Actually, nevermind. The images are not PNG ... they are BMP. I'm not sure why I said PNG.
