    Hello, I'm a french software developer and a have a question concerning
    the Vista icons.
    Is it allowed / legal to have one or two Vista Icons from the RC2 Build
    in our application (in c++ resource file)? The application is a System
    Tweak Utiltiy for Windows XP and Vista.
    Best regards, Berry

    If the icon is in an icon resource file that is part of Windows, just point
    your app to the icon in that resource file. Then you're legally using a part
    of Windows.
