Yes, the standalone builder was altered in several ways, one of which
was to support a more standard API for Windows resources. From the
engine change log:
The method by which standalone building is done has changed in this
release. Standalones are now built in such a way that they behave much
better as executable files on all three platforms. In particular,
Revolution standalone executables can now:
- be digitally signed using the various OS tools on Windows and Mac OS X
- have arbitrarily sized document and application ICO files used on
- have their resources edited on Windows
- be used with various third-party executable processing tools (such
as compressors, trial run makers, network key wrappers etc.)
If you're having a problem, you should probably submit a bug report.
Although, if you didn't use a Windows icon editor to create your Windows
app icons, I'd try that first.
