How to import icons into Visual Basic Applications

Query: "I would like to use icons files created in this software in Visual Fox Pro 8, but it does not work,when I try to load in VFP appears "Icon is corrupt or in wrong format", that is in every icon created in this application".

Solution: Try to convert icons into 32x32 format or 256-colored format.

Query: "Can you give some advices about using icons with VB. Sometimes VB does not accept icons. Why?"

Solution: Different parts of VB will do different things. For example, some icons which are larger than 16x16 will not be accepted as valid files for many forms and other areas. The image box and picture box controls will not always accept .ico files either. It depends on the circumstance. Now, all that being said, I have experienced those problems mostly in VB 6 and earlier. Since .NET has come out, I have not had anywhere near as much trouble, especially with forms not accepting icons with a size aspect of greater than 16x16.
The general rule for solving such a problem would be listing the sizes incide an icon in correct ascending order, starting from 16x16 and ending with 48x48.

Query: "Why Visual Basic does not accept icon?"

Solution: In Visual Basic you can use almost all icon-formats for Windows XP, but it can't take one, TrueColor + Alpha (32 bits). It takes TrueColor (24 bits). It can not take Windows Vista (packed) icons.
At this website, you can download code for using TrueColor + Alpha (32 bits)-icons:
