I have build an application in VC 6.  I have created an ICON and set its ID to IDR_MAINFRAME.  If the application is on the desktop, this ICON is displayed.  BUT, when the application is added to the start menu, the icon displayed is the 16x16 version of the MFC icon.  Why is my ICON not being used?  How do I set the 16x16 version?

The application is a multi document application, not a dialog based type.


Thanks for any help

It may be that it is trying to use the large 32x32 version of the icon and thus the default MFC application is being displayed. You icons should be in both the 16x16 size and the 32x32.  Hope this helps.

My 2 cents...

Open your icon in the Resource Editor and at the top of the icon window there is a line labelled "Device:".  Choose the "Small 16x16" choice there and make a small icon for Windows to use.
