"ExtractIconA" fails with Vista ?

I use to call this function to extract an icon from a library file (.ICL)
Under 98,2000,XP, it works but with Vista, the value returned is always 0.
I've made a search on MSDN, but not found yet any tips.

Anyone else has success with this function ?

Vista RC1 fr, CTD 1.5.1ptf6

make sure not to use ordinal numbers in external function declaration.
Ordinals may have changed in Vista.

Finally i found that something has really changed inside ExtractIconA, maybe
due to libray format ;
If i use "shell32.dll" (from XP or Vista) instead of my "MyOwnLibrary.icl",
i've got the icon as expected.
I'm going to do more tests with home-made icon libraries.
