Exe without icon

13 posts in this topic

Seems a trivial question, but how to compile a script without any icon at all? Tried to remove it with Reshacker, but it just corrupts the exe.

Not sure you can. Why is this required?


Post your code because code says more then your words can. SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y.

Well, you can with easy icon maker. However, I'm not sure if it's windows 7 or not but it shows up as a black square even though it's transparent.

@kaotkbliss, thanks a lot, I thought about this, but as you said, it still shows a black rectangle and it still would be better to do it "technically". Just for aesthetic reasons, I'm doing some kind of project, which uses one main exe and a big bunch of auxiliary ones. Any other ideas, please? :blink:

look inside shell32.dll . Windows by default offers 3 blank icons. just browse through all the icons and at a specific point (somewhere in the middle) you can get these three icons, that are often mistaken as blanks. You can either extract those blank icons or point the compiler towards those.

As for the name of the exe, the alt+255 combination works well (from the numpad ofcourse) to give a " " name to ur exe. I hope this is not a malware you are doing. Hope this helps.

By the way why dont you simply hide the auxillary exe's :blink: ?? Or perhaps fileinstall the auxillary ones in a temp and later delete them ;)

Why do you need to remove the icon anyway?

I don't see any reason to remove the icon, but this is the way:

-compile WITHOUT UPX (or unpack the exe with UPX)

-remove Icon with Reshacker

-manually apply UPX if you want.
