> > I was wondering if any one out there knew of a way to replace the little "windows" icon on the title bar of a form, left of the caption(title), when running your own .exe file outside of VFP 6. When running the form itself WITHIN VFP 6, the FoxPro Icon is there, and I was wondering if this can be replaced when running the .exe or even within VFP 6? Thanks ahead of time for anyone's help!

> Yes you can change this icon. you must create an icon with 2 images though, 1 16x16 and the other 32x32. I don't recall the color debth that is allowed but you can try 16 or 256. Add that file to the project and recompile the exe.

Paul,
I don't think I'm understand you about making an icon with 2 images. So your saying I have to make 2 separate icon files (one 16x16 and one 32x32) or combine them and make one 48x48? Right now I have the two separate ones and VFP only allows me to attach the 32x32 one. They are .ico files and as far as I know, they are only 16 colors. I converted some .jpg into .gif and set the color level to 16 when converting. I then used a icon editor to save the .gif as .ico. Let me know what you think?
