I have two MFC projects and I want to change the default icon from the BCGSoft icon to my own icon. What are the steps for doing this? Just changing the contents of the icon pointed to by the IDR_MAINFRAME const doesn't change anything.

The problem was windows related. There used to be an icon cache file in the Windows folder called ShellIconCache. All you had to do is delete that file in Safe mode and your new icons would appear. AFAIK, that file is gone in newer Windows versions. To refresh the icons, reboot your system. Unfortunately, I rarely reboot my system so it didn't occur to me. This was not a BCGSoft issue. Sorry.
