Aren't icons already created on the global heap? They're created with 
GlobalAlloc16, and (optionally) added to a link list of shared icons. Since 
HICONs are really just void pointers, would something need to be done to 
transform the pointer for the receiving thread to see the same memory 
(assuming different processes need different pointers to see the same memory 
area)? I'm not too read up on how shared memory actually works.
