URGENT - How to create .exe file with own icon

Hi People,

I was requested to deliver a tour for CD-ROM.
I can make an autorun to load basic html that opens krpano, or create an executable file.
Is it possible to create my own icon image for the .exe file?

I generated the .exe file, but it comes with a big FLASH icon and loads installed flash player screen. Will it be accessible for other users that don't have flash software installed?

I have to deliver it on monday. Hope to have your help asap.

Thanks for your time!!

Hi Daniel,

I know jack sh*t about icons and things but did a search and this looks promising

Free software to make the icon

Tutorial on making a .exe file which I'm not sure what that's all about but later there's something about adding your own pre made icon to the .exe file

Hope it helps as I know your probably in a rush to get things complete ;-)

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your time seeking this!!

Yes.. I'm quite in a hurry here. Almost no sleeping! :)

I tried icofx, but although I could make the .ico file, it couldn't change krprotect .exe output file cause, as was wrote on the error log, the .exe file is compressed.

I don't know if the .rar solution of the youtube video is ideal. There could be people without winrar installed. That would be a problem.

I think i'm going to create an autorun with a single .html and one .swf with all files.

It would be more "classy" with the .exe file. Maybe this could be a feature upgrade on krprotect.

Unless somebody comes with a new solution! ;)

THanks a lot!!!!!

Sorry, I think I may have misread the the movie clip? I wasn't too sure what all the winrar stuff was all about but noticed that towards the end after the guy made a .exe file he used a process to give that .exe file it's own icon. I don't think it had anything to do with the file being created by winrar but just that it was a .exe file.

Good luck with the project and remember to take small 'cat naps' cos if you anything like me you'll make the most crazy mistakes when your tired *blink*

with Resource Hacker is might by possible too... (but eventually a bit complex)
alternatively try googling for "flashplayer projector change icon"

best regards,
