Visual Studio 2005 Image Library
The Visual Studio 2005 Image Library is a collection of application images that appear in Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Visual Studio, and other Microsoft software. You can use this set of over 1,000 images to create applications that look visually consistent with Microsoft software.
The image library includes three main categories of images: animations, bitmaps, and icons. A readme file, *readme.htm, is included for each major area. These readme files include information about the appropriate use of these images in your applications.
During Visual Studio setup, the image library is copied to your computer as the file VS2005ImageLibrary.zip. The default directory for this file is \...\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\VS2005ImageLibrary\.
