digitalmars.D - Looking for a better source of information

Could someone here please point me in the direction of a better source of
information?

I'm trying to give my application an icon using a .ico file as the resource to
load it from,
and I'm running into a little trouble.  Since it seems most of the people here
have kept up on
their C and/or C++ programming, I'm guessing this should seem so easy that
you'll
probably wonder why I even have to ask... but the fact is, I don't know what
integer values
are represented by such enum values as LR_DEFAULTCOLOR and such.

Here's a link to the page I'm looking at right now...

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/winui/winui/windowsuserinterface/resources/introductiontoresources/resourcereference/resourcefunctions/loadimage.asp

Not very helpful at all.

I would appreciate any help on this,
whether a simple compileable example or a link to a more informative web page,
or whatever.

Thanks. Not sure why I didn't think of that. I suppose it's probably because I never have liked any of the Microsoft Windows SDKs. Couldn't find the link for it at the bottom of that page, but I did manage to find a download site... then after several hours of downloading, my ISP disconnected me with a few kilobytes to go and aborted the download. When I'm feeling up to a little more torture, perhaps I'll try it again. Hehe. Either way... nice of you to point it out. :) TZ
