NotifyIcon: ShowBalloonTip method doesn't work when the overload with the System.Drawing.Icon is used

The ShowBalloonTip method allows you to provide a System.Drawing.Icon object to show a custom icon in the balloon notification. However, the method doesn't work when this overload is used. The balloon notification is not displayed at all. 

To work this around, use the predefined BalloonTipIcon icons with the additional overload of the method.

notifyIcon.ShowBalloonTip( "title", "text", BalloonTipIcon.Warning);

We investigated the scenario and the issue was within the Windows Shell APIs that the RadNotifyIcon uses. 

Upon further testing we noticed that the problem is fixed with Windows 11 Version 22H2 (Build 22621.1992) and we suggest upgrading to this Windows version or a higher one.
