Assigning custom size icons to CStatic controls

I want to have the custom size icons I've created assigned to a CStatic control, but for some reason the only thing it wants to display is the 32x32 icon image rather than my 40x45 icon image.  Is there a way to set the CStatic control so it displays the one I want.  Source examples, please.

Thanks in advance,
    Dave

The problem is that LoadIcon() etc. always returns a HICON to
a standard 32x32 icon. But...
Go to www.microsoft.com and use the search engine. Look for
"ReadIconFromICOFile" (there will be 3 records found). In the
file ICONS.C you will find the complete answer how to get a
real HICON from any icon file. When this is done you just have
to override CStatus::OnPaint (if you want a CStatic to
to the job?!) and draw it your self with DrawIcon().

Another icon size I want to use is 550x30.  How can I set this?

Because I don't believe SetIcon() works, but you can always try.

I have tried for the past four days to get onto the MSDN site, and I haven't been able to get the files you're suggesting I look at.  I'm not a registered member the MSDN site, but I have tried countless times to register but the server is always to busy to allow me to register.  I would really appreciate it if you could e-mail these three files to me, as I can't seem to get them.

I really appreciate it,
