We have an appication that requires 32 bit color because of complex graphics and displays. I need to check the computer to verify if 32 bit colors are available before installing the application.

The max number the "GetSystemInfo ( COLORS , nColor , sColor )" function returns is the 24 bit number (16777216).... regardless if 32 bits are available. There does not appear to be any way to verify if 32 bit colors are available with this version of IS.

Any suggestions?

Thanks a million,

I'd suggest you start looking at Microsoft's MSDN site for a possible API call to handle these color-related inquiries.
