Look up ExtractIconEx. This seems to give you both large and small icons. If you need sample code, leave me a comment.

Erik.

Okay, this seem to extract a small icon, but now i don't know where to extract it from. The ExtractAssociatedIcon function works fine when it comes to extracting an icon, but it doesn't return the path of the associated application or dll (it should according to the win32 api).Please help
