When you save your icon from paint, you need to ensure that you use the Save As function and select the 24-bit Bitmap(*.bmp;*dib) format. Other formats cannot be used as icons, so that it all there is to it.

i have done in this way.In this way the image is unable to add to the icon.
Means I saved that image at desktop and when i go the my form and try to browse that image ,that image is not showing (unable to browse that image).
