Thanks for the tip.
I was not aware of that because I always got WRC error messages like
"explorer_intres.rc:337:58: Error: Cannot handle UNICODE filenames"
when using
IDI_EXPLORER            ICON    DISCARDABLE     "res/explorer.ico"

Now I tried once more and found this works:
IDI_EXPLORER            ICON    DISCARDABLE     res/explorer.ico

Why doesn't the standard way with quotation marks work? I think this is a bug 
and should be corrected in wrc?
