The .NET Framework and the underlying native GDI+ imaging API is not always really helpful with their error messages when using Bitmaps. The error message you get could mean that the file could not be loaded (maybe because it was not found) or even that the process/machine is out of memory.

See my answer in your other thread on what you can do to stabilize your image handling code:
