I'm not an expert when it comes to COM objects or reading from the registry, so I'll just ask it here. How can I retrieve the icons used for MIME types in Windows? And would that work for all Windows versions the latest mIRC works on?

For example, when I have the .zip extension, I want to see where Windows draws the icon from.

Any help, guidence, or a snippet of code, would be apreciated. Thanks! smile
