My my application is not even compiling with following error.

Error creating ALink Win32 resources: Error reading icon 'C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\7.1\VSProjectApplication.ico' -- The system cannot find the file specified.

Actually my application using another Icon not  VSProjectApplication.ico

I tried to change the Icon in Project Properties, but still problem persist.

Any Idea? I am using VS 2003

Hi Mamtha1982,

how did you go about changing the icon link, did you do it via Visual Studio?
