A Window that has an icon associated to it will allow the Window Properties to have a path that uses UNC and does not include a drive letter, like the following.

 

\\NetworkComputer\Share\directory\file.ico

 

The Build Tool will give the following error.

 

 Stub_icon: Unexpected format to RCID command.

 NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'C:\Apps\gen\VS100\stub_icon.exe' : return code '0x1'

 Stop.

 Resource compile for Stub failed with errors.

 File Not Found

 

Change the path to the icon in the Windows Properties to have a drive letter, like the following.

 

Z:\directory\file.ico
