    Note that you don't need to edit the project file to add a Win32 resource to a C# project. You can do this through the UI. Go to the Application tab in Project Properties, then under Resources, click the Resource File radio button. Enter the path to your .res file in the edit box or use the browse button to locate it.

    If you still want your application to have an icon, you need to include it in your .rc file. You'll want something like:

    1 ICON DISCARDABLE "myicon.ico"

    The problem here is that if you have existing resoures (version info) it gets overwritten, so the resulting executable doesn't have the version info - at least that's what's happening to my app.

    Is it not possible to write a manafest in VB6 (SP5).  Do I need to have VB.net?
