Problem with ImageList in VB5

I am using an ImageList attached to a TreeView in order to display icons in the TreeView. I am populating the TreeView from a different form. When I try to add my first node to the TreeView, and select an Image from the ImageList, the message "ImageList must be initialized before it can be used".
I added 4 pictures to the ImageList at design time. Furthermore, I used to do the extract on the same form, and never had this problem before.

I then tried this:  Set MyFirstForm.MyImageList.ListImages(1).Picture = LoadPicture(gSYSPath & "\greenlit.ico") but I keep getting the message "Run-time error '383'; Property is read-only".
Any ideas?

That's really simple to miss, so don't feel bad.  I once fought with a toolbar for a week because of this same situation.
