Ive just created animated icons with Microangelo 5.5.  On the desktop it doesnt animate the icon, just shows the first frame.  Ive set the animations to work through Microangelo, and can see it animated in the windows for changing icon etc.  Ive looked around on the net and cant find animated icons for xp, just cursors, so Im wondering if animated icons are available for xp.
Thanx in advance,
Kezza

I'm not familiar with the application you used, but this information may help:


You can change some visual effects in Display Properties and others in System Properties in Control Panel.

Change visual effects in Display

Open Display in Control Panel.
On the Appearance tab, click Effects.
In the Effects dialog box, select the check box for those items you want to turn on.
 Notes

To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
For information about a specific item, right-click the item and then click What's This?.
Change visual effects in System

Open System in Control Panel.
On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.
On the Visual Effects tab, click Custom.
Select the check box for those items you want to turn on. Clear the check box for the items you want to turn off.
 Note

Im accepting this, and am going to try it anyway, but you got the points - I can't believe how quick you were responding, you deserve them.  I just found out the problem is to do with Microangelo, it's an evaluation copy I have and it only animates on My Computer, Recycle Bin and the like, not on desktop unless you purchase the product.
Thanks so much!

Thank you, however for your future reference...
If you do not get an acceptable answer or you have not tested a response you don't have to accept an expert's advice.

Hope all works out with your software. I'm going to look into it myself. :)
