Icon problems

I'm trying to add a Vista compatible icon that my friend made for me to a program I've written. I'm able to use it as the little icon on the title bar, but when I try to use it as the program icon I get the following build error...

"Unable to write to output file 'C:\blahblahblah.exe': The specified image file did not contain a resource section. "

I read on another site that this was due to VS .NET 2003 not supporting icons over 256 colors. I had him reduce the color depth and it worked, but I've since switched to using VB .NET 2005 Express Editioin, which I thought was supposed to be "Vista compatible" but the full color icon still doesn't work.

Anyone know of a quick solution? If necessary I can post the project and/or icon.
