I think something is corrupting/resetting your last error. It is common problem in Perl Win32 code. Do not use a ::FormatMessage. Add a "use Win32;" at the top of your script to prevent a silent require/import (see http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/blob/HEAD:/ext/Win32CORE/Win32CORE.c#l25) which might be messing things up even though it isn't supposed to.

edit: Tried Win32::GUI::LoadImage directly per https://github.com/gitpan/Win32-GUI/blob/master/GUI.pm#L561?

    $^E is $^E, use $^E instead of SomeFunctionName
      $^E is 10 times slower in NYTProf than Win32::GetLastError, plus you have to cast it with a +0 to get an error code plus $^E doesn't know the text for the 12*** or 15*** series.
        I don't see how that is important, $^E is just four clicks away, always there, needs no use lines or nothing
