Icons not visible in explorer using msvc++

Hopefully this is nice and easy. Got a msvc++ application with an icon resource. When you run the app it appears, when you create a shortcut to it on the desktop it is the correct icon. However, when you view it in windows explorer it has the mfc icon shown. If you then click properties it gives you the properties window with the correct icon?!

Any fixes for this?

Cheers

James.

Icon has two parts: 32*32 and 16*16. Open icon in the project Resource view and see both types using Device combobox. Possibly one of icon parts still contains standard MFC image.
