Icons built with IconBuilder give errors in Preview. Why?

Dragging an icon onto the Preview application in Mac OS X displays an error message that claims the icon file is corrupt.

This problem is a bug in the OS and is not related to IconBuilder. Apple has been notified of this problem.

To view the .ico file properly, we suggest using the IconExaminer application that’s included free with the IconBuilder download. You can find it in the Goodies folder inside the IconBuilder Essentials folder.
