Visual Studio Icons

Where can I find the dll or exe which contains the embedded Visual
Studio 2005 Icons that the application uses? I know that VS comes with

an icon library, but practically none of the icons which visual studio
uses are included. I was hoping I could pull them out with an icon
extractor, but I can't seem to find the correct container file. Are
those icons accessible at all?

Be aware that AFAIK only the icons in the directory you mention are free to
use, for others you need the right from the authors to use those.

Understood, but I wasn't going to use them for published products.
That, and I was just curious as to where and how VS actually stored
them. Usually, they're either embedded in the exe or inside of a dll,
but I can't find them anywhere. MS did a good job of hiding them.
