General messaging

This property contains a 32 × 32 pixel image of an icon, the same as the contents of a .ICO file, but only the upper left 16 × 16 pixels are considered significant. This property is normally copied from the .ICO file specified in the SmallIcon line of the appropriate [Description] section of the form configuration file.

Note  Some platforms do not support 16 × 16 pixel icons. The 32 × 32 format of this property is usable in such a case but client applications should be aware of display inconsistencies.
