transparent XP icon

P: n/a
I'd like to use a transparent icon in a ms access form. The icon looks good
(transparency) when I use the Windows XP-style. But when I switch the
preferences of the Windows & Buttons-settings to Windows - classic I see a
light gray background behind the icon.
What do I have to do when I would like to use the icon in both environments?

Transparent.zip is a database containing functions to allow for the
conversion of Bitmap, Gif, Jpeg, Enhanced Metafile and Metafile to an
Enhanced Metafile format supporting Transparent backgrounds.

Then you did not read the documentation correctly and/or your original
images do not have a white background as the docs explicitly state is
required.
