Where can I find XP version of FILECOPY.AVI ?

P: n/a
Where can I find XP version of FILECOPY.AVI, to use in a dialog?

There is a movie called FILECOPY.AVI which is included with Visual
Studio 2005, but it is the 16 bit (Windows 95) version. There are a
few other videos in the same directory that look like the 32 bit
versions.

My question is: Where can I find a 32 bit (XP style) version of this
video? I know it exists because if I copy files in XP, I get a
different animation, with semi-transparent folders.

Tks,
Rui Oliveira

I don't see it in VS 2008 either.

There's nothing that says Microsoft has to give their artwork free with the
development tools, so there's no reason to expect it to be there.

If you can find the OS dll or exe with the resource, you can probably
extract it using Visual Studio.

The keyword here is "extract". Don't just use the OS resource.

Heh. Cool link, thank you! I never saw that blog entry before.

I never imagined people actually, erm, "borrowed" resources from the OS
*wink*.

Disclaimer: I don't condone this behavior in any way. I just heard rumors
it could be done.

:-)

Cheers,
Mark
