Could you explicity add an icon as the apps icon - as when I have looked at
the sources there isn't one - so it is hard for me to write code to replace
it - my earlier thread - if it doesn't explicitly exist as I need to know
the resource id to change it...

I will try to put something together for you when I have some time...but I
only have MSVC7.1 so I can't give you a project for MSVC6.

I think they want" ;)
