How to extract name of icon?

Vlasta (2012-09-28 10:58:33):

Icons in an .icl file may not have a name, just a numeric id. If they have a name, you'll see it under them in the list. In case of .exe and .dll files, they never have a descriptive name.

What list?

I have an ICL lib with names.
I extract icons using ExtractIcon http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms648068(v=vs.85).aspx
What function to use to extract icon name?

The window you can see near the bottom of the RealWorld Icon Editor window after you open an icon library file.

But what function?

Vlasta (2012-09-28 11:04:56):

You cannot extract icon names with that function. Icons names are saved in a optional, non-standard resource block.

Double-click "New icon library" on the Create page.

can i use only 32 bit (128x128, 48x48, 32x32, etc...) icon files?
do i need 24 bit or 16 bit?

Vlasta (2014-09-15 22:52:01):

24bit are very unusual and not recommended, 16bit is not valid for icons; so basically yes, just 32bits is fine these days
