Dear All,

Last night, I confirmed the following:

Today, by the same method, I have managed to put a 16M-colour 16x16 pixel
icon into a Runrev EXE. However, nothing I have tried so far has enabled me
to substitute with a 32x32 16M-colour icon. The icon is substituted OK, but
the EXE does not execute any more. So this is a small limitation. For anyone
who is sufficiently interested, perhaps an e-mail to the author of the
Resource Hacker would provide further suggestions.
