    Hi, I am in a situation where I need to upload different File Types in
    an application, and based on their MIME-Type, I need to show their
    respective icons.

    The question is: Does anyone know how to read Windows Icons (.ico) from
    ASP.NET based on their MIME-Type and convert them to (.gif)

    I need a urgent answer to this.

    Thanks in anticipation!

    I would suggest you simply extract the icons you want using any of the icon
    extractors available, there are both free/shareway/commercial versions
    available for that.

    Then when you have them as .gif or .jpg it's a simple thing to display the
    correct icon on your page.

    The .ico format by the way is simply a bitmap (bmp).
