I'm getting a memory write error, I suspect I am not pointing to my buffer array correctly somewhere but not sure. Running it under memproof, I am releasing the heap correctly. I am storing DWORDS btw.

gBUFF DWORD ? ;pointer to heap of memory hopefully

invoke GetProcessHeap
invoke HeapAlloc,eax,HEAP_ZERO_MEMORY,330000*sizeof(DWORD) ;size of bitmap in pixels
mov gBUFF,eax

invoke GetProcessHeap
invoke HeapFree, eax, 0, gBUFF

InitArray proc BDC:DWORD,w:DWORD, h:DWORD

m2m ex,0
m2m fx,0
mov esi, OFFSET gBUFF
mov ecx,0
push ecx
invoke GetPixel,BDC,ex,fx
pop ecx
mov [esi+ecx*4],eax
inc ecx
inc ex
cmp ex,w
jnge lj2
mov ex,0
inc fx
cmp fx,h
jnge lj2

InitArray endp

why are you releassing the heap before you even use it... try putting that after you finish using it..

also have you try to check if the API's return a error i dont see any error check code there..

HeapFree is in the WM_CLOSE portion, it is not being released before usage.

since its not a structure and since its already a pointer to the memory allocated i dont think you need to do
mov esi, OFFSET gBUFF

you should just do
mov esi, gBUFF

thanks, it seems to have worked.. but why...

you would only move the offset of structure so that you could get the pointer to its memory... since its already a pointer to the memory location, it ends up pointing to the dword of the location the dword is stored and starts writing there

mov esi,OFFSET gBuff loads the address of gBuff.

So when ECX is 0, mov ,eax overwrites gBuff, not the buffer pointed to by gBuff.
