Problem in Shell_NotifyIcon

Hi ,
 I have been trying to write an application that adds the icon to system tray when minimised. I have used Shell_NotifyIcon  for the same. And I have obtained the Icon handle using following function call:

CWnd::GetIcon(BOOL bBigIcon);

As I thought this is the easiest way to get application Icno handle. Application was created using ApppWizard. But this function returns NULL when called no matter whats the value of the paramtere : TRUE or FALSE.

Please help me with this matter. Though it seems trivial.

Use LoadIcon or LoadImage API to load icon from the program resources.
