    ok im trying to get my program to extract its icon to a directory so that it can be used elsewhere (file associations and such). the icon contains all the icon sizes and stuff, but when i extract it i only get a 16 bit 32x32 icon, so the colours are screwy an i lose all the other icons. is there a way to store the ion in the program so that i can extract it exactly as it was originally, ie, the exact same .ico
