Programming Tips - Error RC2176: old DIB in something.ico; pass it through SDKPAINT

Date: 2015dec8 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.
