I'm not an expert on this but I remember from the posts on this list that
windows icons must have exact size in bytes, 744?

Today the new version 4.6 of GraphicConverter was announced. Among other new
features it now includes an option to scale to a pixel count.

Previous attempts to make windows icons for Rev in GraphicConverter were
unsuccessful but with this new feature it may (or may not :)) work

Hope this helps
