Product: Visual Studio

Q.  Error RC2176: old DIB in <something>.ico; pass it through SDKPAINT

A.  This error is misleading.  Its probably occurring because you have
a newer .ico than Visual Studio 20xx can handle.

I have fixed this problem by:

- Opening the icon in PhotoShop.
Selecting all and copying to the clipboard.

- Create a new icon in Visual Studio and pasting in the icon.
