    Here's an old, tired example.

    Here's an msdn example.

    At its simplest, associate the imagelist with the listview with ListView_SetImageList
    and use LVM_INSERTITEM to associate the image index with a specific listview item.

    Thanks Ken, you answered my question perfectly. Only that made me realize that I had another problem. I was originally getting the icons from Shel32.dll, but after I got the icons to display i realized these were the wrong icons. The icons i'm trying to get are the file type icons, for example the can and paintbrushes for a bitmap. Can anyone tell me where i can find these files?

    I'm not sure but I imagine those resources would be in mspaint.exe.
