c++.windows.32-bits - LoadBitmap

I'm having trouble with LoadBitmap when used to register a brush in the
window class.

when I run the program in WinMe, Win 98, NT everything works fine

when I run in Win95 The bitmap loads as a large black blob.

The bitmap is mostly black.

I tried changing over to LoadResource with the same arguments but then it
did not load anything...

I'm confused as I recall reading something about this problem in one of my
books but I can't track it down.

 if ((hLibrary = LoadLibrary (TEXT ("graph.dll"))) != NULL)
     hBitmap=LoadBitmap (hLibrary, MAKEINTRESOURCE (IDB_BITMAP1));

     hBrush=CreatePatternBrush (hBitmap);
     DeleteObject (hBitmap);

     wndclass.style         = CS_HREDRAW | CS_VREDRAW ;
     wndclass.lpfnWndProc   = WndProc ;
     wndclass.cbClsExtra    = 0 ;
     wndclass.cbWndExtra    = 0 ;
     wndclass.hInstance     = hInstance ;
     wndclass.hIcon         = LoadIcon (hInstance, MAKEINTRESOURCE
(IDI_ICON1)) ;
     wndclass.hCursor       = LoadCursor (hInstance, MAKEINTRESOURCE
     wndclass.hbrBackground = hBrush;
     wndclass.lpszMenuName  = szAppName ;
     wndclass.lpszClassName = szAppName ;

     if (!RegisterClass (&wndclass))
