C++ Question

icon is not in 3.00 format

When building a C++ application in Visual Studio 2008, I receive the following error: iconfile.ico is not in 3.00 format.

I created the icon file using Paint, and saved it as a .ico file.

I tried saving it as 16 bit, 24 bit, and 256 color.

So far, none of these formats appear to be version 3.00.

How do I resolve this?

I downloaded this:Photo Filtre I had to convert the file to a .ico file. I had assumed that if I do a "save as", it did more than just change the extension. After the conversion, the icon worked correctly.
