I am trying to create my own icon for my username under XP RC2 and I would like to know what the size of the icon is? Thanks for any info you can give me.

The pictures for the usernames are located in the following directory.

%systemdrive%Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataMicrosoftUser Account PicturesDefault Pictures

They have the following format:

airplane.bmp, 48x48 pixels, 24bit, 96dpi

When a user picture is picked from the available selection, the bitmap is copied to the parent directory under a file corresponding to the name of the user.

If you browse to find a suitable picture (in jpg/bmp/gif/png format), that bitmap is scaled to the approx dimensions and saved as a *.bmp in the parent dir.
