  • Under VFP dev, use the Tools | Code References menu option and search for "import.ico" this will show where the search chars are used in a project.  Don't forget to set the File Types searched to as wide as possible.

  • Removing a file from disk and from the other/images files section of the priject does not remove all references the compiler tries to follow to find and add the fil to the project.

    Searching with Code References should reveal it.

    If not, open up the debugger and especially have the debugout window open, then do a build. You should get verbose messages about which files are processed and the error will be put there, too, so you can see where it comes from. It might also be the setting of the overall EXEcutable icon in the project info, if it's not in any property or code.

    Bye, Olaf.
