When you click on MS-DOS prompt properties, change icon, you see a filename "PIFMGR.DLL" which contains a lot of icons. Can VB be used to create from a list of icons into "MyIcon.Dll"

Should work, just add a resource file with the pictures you want in it and compile the DLL.  This works for EXE's haven't tried it on a DLL, but in theory....
