    Icon not working


    I created an icon using MS Paint. It saved as a .ico file and all but VB
    won't allow me to use it. Does anyone know why?

    rae,
    What you created with MS Paint is NOT an ICON, but most likely a BitMap
    file with and extension of .ico (that DOES NOT make it an Icon) Icons are
    graphics files with a very specific internal format, and they CANNOT be created
    with MS Paint. Paint creates Bitmap files, JPEG or GIF files, and that is
    it. To create an icon, you need special software such as
    Icon Creator from GreatOwl Software http://www.greatowl.com
