I wonder if the method ID2D1Factory1::CreateGdiMetafile exists in documentation only or in practice too. I am able to use succefully many methods of the same interface, let's say all of them, but when I call CreateGdiMetafile I get the error D2DERR_UNSUPPORTED_OPERATION which makes me think that Microsoft hasn't implemented the method yet. BTW, my C++ program throws an exception and crashes before i can handle the error. I can verify with the debugger that the passed parameter is correct and contains a valid metafile. I am curious to know if anybody is using Direct2D for drawing and how they reproduce a Metafile Picture.
