The Answer is :

  The decw$examples:ico.exe tool has reasonably error messages
  on various failures, and can be a useful diagnostic.
  Check the security settings on the target node -- the target
  node is the system running the X Windows Server, and thus the
  node that is driving the particular X Windows display.  (The
  X applications such as ico are the X Windows clients.)
  Also check the X Windows server log file on the target system.
  Also ensure you have TCP/IP Services V5.0A with ECO or (better)
  V5.1 with ECO.  (As of this writing in August 2001, V5.1 is the
  current release.)
