     I needed to use windows xp (32-bit alpha icons) icons in my vb app, but vb does not supports them. one day I found a example on vbaccelerator, the vbaccelerator example was fully working but I found one problem with it. the example shown at vbaccelerator needed we should make a Resource Script, in other words the resource file should be manually made. this article shows how you can use xp style icon for the follwing conditions: 1. without using resource at all or without breaking you existing resource file. Plese Vote If You Found this Usefull.

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
