Tom,

Check out:
<http://www.altuit.com/webs/altuit2/RunRev/Tutorials.htm>
for info on creating an Icon for Windows.

Check Bugzilla for the already documented problems with visual effects.
Mostly, they're tied to QT. If you do:

set the DontUseQTEffects to true
set the DontUseQT to true

on startup, then you will use the embedded RR engine effects, while not a
nice, they work. RR is working on a fix...
