Managed resources and icons

hi @all,

VS2008

I have my icons organized in this structure:

..\16x16\icon.png
..\24x24\icon.png

The same icons have the same name.

Now I have created to resource files:

16x16.resx and 24x24.resx

When trying to add the second icon, the IDE complains about an already
existing file.

What can I do here?

Furthermore, I wanted to place these resource files in its own
(solution) folder. But when doing so, I can't load/save images using the
property editor.

Any clue or link would be helpful. Thanks.

Why not give them unique names. This is how I name mine,
icon16.png and icon24.png

Plus it helps me identify what size they are which is useful
since it's not always obvious or possible to check.
