[ESS] R: R: Xemacs icons are not shown on win2000

I have a lot of trouble with Windows XP trying to create file associations 
to XEmacs and having the icons show up. Just one problem I would like to 
fix would be to have the XEmacs icon show up when viewing the contents of 
a folder.

I have the file association so that .txt and .tex files are associated 
with XEmacs, but the XEmacs icon doesn't display.

The answer below doesn't really help me although it seems to be about much 
the same question, because I can't find the icon file for XEmacs

I would appreciate any assistance on this admittedly small but nonetheless 
annoying problem.
