In Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\Graphics\Icons is too common used. I want more choice, other than this.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Icons is nice at that site you suggested. Unfortunely, I want *.ico file not *.gif

Hi
If you can not find icon you need at http://vbaccelerator.com/iconlib.htm, take a look at  http://www.coolarchive.com/icons.cfm - there are more 4000 icons. If it's not enough for you, try http://www.cs.indiana.edu/picons/ftp/index.html. If all above doesn't help - you have to draw icons yourself <smile>

When i go to that Web site (http://www.freefever.com/graphics), i right click on the GIF image, and save it as a BMP file.

Then with Paint i copy the image (or a part of it) into the clipboard, and paste it in my icon designer tool (Visual C++ for example).

It's a little bit manual, but it works fine and i made very cute icons that way.

The hongkong link didn't work for me but I was able to find  "Icon Digger 2000.exe" at this site:

http://soft.biugates.com

It can extract icon files from exe files and convert bmp files to icons.
But it doesn't do gifs.

But I did find "XnView.exe" at this site:

http://www.xnview.com

It can convert from 400 different graphis to about 40 different graphics.
It can convert a whole folder of files at once - including gifs to windows icon files.
I know, I just did it.

It has many editing features also - and the best part - they were both free downloads!

I hope this helps you all.
