Hey all, This is probably quite a trivial question, but does anybody know how to compile an exe with an icon that has a greater colour bit depth than 8 bits, because it seems like MSVC++6.0 only supports 4 and 8 bit bitmaps. Any help you guys could give me would be much appriciated, thanks. EDIT : Oh yeah, and the same thing applies for toolbar button pictures, I need them to have a higher colour depth as well. - James [edited by - weasalmongler on November 30, 2003 4:26:10 PM]

Yeah, I just read that back and I missed a key word from that sentance, sorry. How do I import 16 bit images and place them on the buttons in the toolbar? I knew how to paste stuff onto buttons, its just if you paste directly on to the button it seems to compile in 8 bit colour and it looks horrible. There must be a way of doing this, can anybody help?

Thanks.

- James
