Hmm... The horrible old icon only appears in folders in which I have previously saved the standalone with the old icon.  New folder = correct icon.  Maybe icons & their associations get saved in thumbs.db and aren't smart enough to update?  However, I can't work out how to show the thumbs.db file on Vista.... :-/  any suggestions?

I also found that IcoFX can change the icon associated with a .exe file.  Setting the icon this way seems to make it behave a bit better that via the Rev build standalone options.

Not quite ready to fork out $50 yet.....surely there must be Windows folks out there who understand this stuff?
