I have a weird thing going on. I'm trying to generate an image in the C# code like this:
Response.ContentType = "image/png";
bmp.Save(Response.OutputStream, ImageFormat.Png); //Exception happens here
One one computer with the same exact installation of VS2010 and ,net framework 4 it works fine, but on another one I get an exception with the following message: "A generic error occurred in GDI+."
How can I fix it?

You can't save a PNG image to a non-seekable stream. You have to pipe it through a MemoryStream first. Take a look at the links in my signature, they're must-reads for you.

Sorry, I don't know ASP NET well enough to know how to do it. Can you post a code sample or a direct link to what you're talking about?

Ok, then download this library and add it to your project.
Then use this code to save the 'bmp' safely to the OutputStream.
ImageBuilder.Current.Build(bmp, Response.OutputStream, new ResizeSettings("format=png");
Also, could you paste the rest of your code dealing with the 'bmp'? I suspect you have a leak that will cause the server to crash, and I'd like to help you avoid it.

I know this is an old post, but I wanted to add this information as well, in case someone like me runs across this issue in the future..
I wasn't able to say .PNG images and it because the IIS App Pool Acount didn't have access to this, key.
Which is required when you use png graphics.
