Changing the Icon of the Executable on Build

6 posts in this topic

Howdy, folks! As much as I like the AutoIt icon, I need to change it on the executable file so that it comes up as something else when I distribute it. Is there some sort of flag I set in the compiler in order to accomplish this, or is there some way to do it in SciTE?

The compiler has an input box to specify an icon. I don't know how you could missed it.

Haha, good point. I was accessing it through the command prompt, but I realized that if you just open up the darn thing, it'll pop up with a box. Thanks!

I was wondering the same, thanks for the response it helped me out.

Question: The Icon is added but when I change the icon view size (small icons) in the explorer to a larger one (medium icons or higher) it reverts back to the AutoIt icon. The icon I attached was designed at 256x256 so it being to small shouldn't be the problem. It seems there is a threshold at which my specified icon can be viewed at in the explorer. Why?

Using Win7 x64. The script was compiled in x86.

Hi, thanks for the post. It helped me. I always use Ctrl + F7 to compile and never noticed the compiler.
