Missing .exe icon

Archives Forums/BlitzPlus Bug Reports/Missing .exe icon

Hi all, i've a problem compiling my programs, i mean that all executables created have a generic empty icon, like old executable (the icon simply showing a little empty window). They run fine, but i can't change default icon to another one 'cause default is missing.
What can i do? :-(

Use Resource Hacker where you can add/replace/remove resources as you want to. And after you have modified resources you can use the Ultimate Packer of eXecutables to reduce size of the executable.

If you are posting thread under Blitz+ forum then you are mostlikely using Blitz+

Hi Andres, i've tryed also with resource hacker, but with no success. The problem is that the executable also miss the default icon, don't know why. There are no icon inside, cannot change it.

Here ya go, this will work for you. Taken from an old thread.

Instead of simply replacing the icon, you have to add the icon, following these steps:

1. Open your EXE from Reshacker
2. Action > Add New Resource...
3. Locate the icon file you want to add.
4. In the dialog box, call the resource "ICON".
5. Click OK.
