There are two images in the icon resource, you either have to modify both of them or simply delete one image.


Actuall i got the solution, there is only one image icon for any project what mistake i did was to just modify only 48 * 48 SIZE image , now i modiffied all the images its working fine.

how did i do it :

1) click on the image
2) go to the image menu
3) Current Icon Image types
Here different sizes of images are present
modify all of them tats it :). There will only be one icon
(.ico) file for one project ( i mean the images which is used for tool bar, exe etc )


Uh-oh, seems that I managed to post highly out-dated information, sorry about that one. (There used to be 2 images in a single icon resource, but nowadays there are many more).

Good job that you had it working though.
