I converted a form... no code just the form... set it as the default window to test it... Run....

and get an error that it cannot convert the .ico file to .BMP....

I am guessing the .ico file is the icon for the window or something... but I don't see an icon property on the windows properties....

I do see this image name in that forms images folder.... but when I select that image the properties does not indicate what type of image it is at all....

What image types are supported for a window's icon? How do I set it? I could just delete the .ico image and add a new one of the correct type... does BMP work on the mac? I thought that was a windows format.

BMP is more or less a Windows format but it works on the Mac too. I've never tried to add an .ico file to my project so I can't say that I've seen that particular error before. Replace it with almost any graphics format and you should be good to go.
