Wrong Icons Displayed After Upgrade to Windows NT 4.0

When you upgrade from Windows NT 3.51 to Windows NT 4.0, it is possible that some icons in converted program groups will be incorrect.
Windows NT 4.0 uses the first icon within an executable program by default. If the default icon within the executable program is not the first one listed, Windows NT 4.0 uses the first icon instead.
Windows NT 3.51 sorts the icons in an executable file to the same order in which they are listed in the .rc file. To improve performance in Windows NT 4.0, the icons are extracted as found and sorted by ID (not by the sequence in the .rc file). Therefore, if the first icon in the .rc file does not have the lowest ID value, there is a difference in the icon displayed in Windows NT 4.0.
