I'd like to convert svg icons to windows icons and mac icons. A free option would be the best.

Probably a better question for superuser.com –  Abizern Jul 10 '10 at 22:43
Better tell people what's your platform. –  zneak Jul 10 '10 at 22:44
Agreed re: platform. As a programmer, you can do this on a mac with the platform APIs. –  Ken Jul 10 '10 at 22:59
@Abizern - not unless he wants to do it programmatically. @user388624 - please clarify your question so that people can assist. –  Saajid Ismail Jul 10 '10 at 23:49
@Saajid Ismail – Since the OP mentioned the price, it's a reasonable assumption that a software tool is required rather than code snippets. –  Abizern Jul 11 '10 at 8:27

The gimp editor can open svg files and save them as ico files. From http://www.gimp.org/features/:

File Formats

The file format support ranges from the common likes of JPEG (JFIF), GIF, PNG, TIFF to special use formats such as the multi-resolution and multi-color-depth Windows icon files.
