Icon loading issue in Windows 7 after recent windows updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • OS: Windows 7


    In our winform based application, we are loading icons from resource. It was working all right till the latest windows updates were installed recently. After windows updates, 2 of the icons started giving problem. They are multi-size icons with size 16x16, 32x32, 48x48 and 64x64. All 32 bit.

    When we roll back windows updates, application work all right. So definitely there is something in the cumulative updates.

    Also, when we add size 128x128 in these icons, then also application start working all right.

    Considering this application is installed in multiple customers sites who are still using Windows 7, we are trying to avoid a patch in case there is something at the OS level which can be reset in the registry etc. without rolling back the entire cumulative update.

    Any idea what is changed in the .net framework or Windows 7 related to this?

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi vkbishnoi,

    Thank you for posting here.

    Since we don‘t have the test environment, I suggest you ask your question in Developer Community or windows 7 related forums for better help.

    The CLR Forum discuss and ask questions about .NET Framework Base Classes (BCL) such as Collections, I/O, Regigistry, Globalization, Reflection. Also discuss all the other Microsoft libraries that are built on or extend the .NET Framework, including Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF), Charting Controls, CardSpace, Windows Identity Foundation (WIF), Point of Sale (POS), Transactions.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Best Regards,
