IW won't Tile default Background

2006-08-27 09:22:18 PM
I have a .gif file that I want to use as a background. I'm using
BDS2006[latest ver], with IW as it came with BDS. C++ Flavor. I put the .gif
file in the project directory [its run as a standalone for the moment], and
the name of the .gif file in the object inspector Background properties ---
it should tile the background but it seems to do nothing...any help...by the
way is there a later version of IW available...do I need to buy a license?
