custom 16 colour bmp resources


I've been reading various threads about loading
bitmaps from linked resources. I seem to have things
pretty much sussed but...  ....I'm trying to embed a
16 colour graphic into a resource file (*.res) using
app studio. All is fine until I introduce a graphic with
a 16 colour custom palette (i.e. 16 shades of blue as
opposed to the 16 standard windows colours). What
appears to be happening is appstudio is importing it
with the standard 16 colours not the custom - I've
prooved this by looking at the resurce in binary
format, this is true for RGB, RLE and OS2 encoded16
colour bitmaps.

Does anybody know how to get round this ???
