    Newbie: Converting .ICO to .BMP (Please help!)

    Hi all,

    I have been searching the net and other forums (inc. this one) for hours now and I cannot find a clear answer on how to convert an Icon file/object to a .BMP image file/object.

    IDEALLY what I am actually trying to do is to: get the Icon from an .EXE file, then convert it to a .BMP. If this can be done all in memory without saving to files in-between, then all the better! The end result is that I'll render the BMP in a 3D world, so this is the Win32 bit that's got me!

    I have seen references to GetIconInfo, but (being a newb) I haven't found a full example. (I am developing the Win32 application in C++ to run on Win2000/XP).

    Thank you very much in advance for any help you can give.

    Icons in win32 (includes 'iconpro' example as '4493.exe' ). The article is old but still valid.
