I would like to change the default icon for my Visual Basic .NET 2003 application. I have two questions:
1. What size (in pixels) is recommended? I know in Windows Explorer, icons are displayed in three sizes, depending on your view: Thumbnails/Tiles view, Icons view, and List/Details view. I suppose I should cater for the biggest of these, Thumbnails/Tiles view. Anyone know what dimensions the icons in this view are? (There's also the icons in the Start Menu and Task Bar, but these look to me like the same sizes used in Windows Explorer)
2. It looks like VB.NET 2003 only accepts *.ico files for icons. Any idea how to convert a BMP to an ICO file?
