    Hi Zhenurik, 

     

    Welcome to MSDN Forum. 

     

    In Visual C# Express Edition IDE, the menu item "Add New Icon" is not displayed by default.

    But you can add it onto Menu bar or under a menu you specified like this: 

    Click Tools menu -> Customize... -> Commands tab -> Select specific Menu or Toolbar or Context menu where you want to add a menu item -> Click "Add Command..." button -> Select "Resources" item in Categories panel -> Select "Add New Icon" in Commands panel -> Click "OK" button

     

    There are many limitations to the feature set in Visual Studio Express Editions, and these products are not intended as a replacement for any of the more fully featured Visual Studio products. They are intended as a very streamlined tool to allow developers to get started with development in the respective languages and to build and share the applications they develop.

  • Do you want to add Icon as a resource file? If yes, first right click on project and select Add new Item -> resource file -> Ok. Then from top-left corner, select 'Icon' from the drop down.

  • As I know it supposed to be an editor so I can draw an icon.

  • Select Add Resources (See in above image - to the right of dropdown) -> Click 'Add new Icon'. It will open Icon file for edit.

    I think that is what you need.

  • Zhenurik,

    Which Target Framework you have selected?  Select ".NET Framework 4.0 Client framework". That will solve your problem. (I am not sure why it is so though). You can choose target framework in project properties.
