I just started using your app. It exports an .iso file (I plan to use for a windows program), but the final image is larger than 32x32 (don't know if this is the problem), and when I try to use it as an icon, WindowsXP doesn't recognize it as an icon.

    Hi David,

    I think this depends on which Windows version you want to use it. For Windows XP I think you can use the .icon generated by the favicon export.

    Thanks for the response. I tried the favicon export option. This creates
    a folder containing several icon files. I tried the .ico file this
    created, and I also tried the 32x32 .png file (even converted it to .ico
    format), but Windows XP doesn't recognize either of these as icons. I am
    able to change icons on the C++ program I am targeting using icon files
    provided by Borland. These are image files 32x32 pixels and in .ico
    format. But when I select an .ico file generated by image2icon, I keep
    getting the message "this file contains no icons". Any advice would be

    Hi David,

    I'm afraid the .ico format supported by Windows XP do not include the 256x256 and 128x128 and can't manage the icon version generated by image2icon.
