How to Add icon file in .exe

Recommended Posts

How to add icons to the EXE

In my source is:

Icon1 GUICtrlCreateIcon = $ ("Red.ico", -1, 24, 216, 24, 24)

But only appears if the file is in the same directory as the exe.

I tried to add Res files at compile time but without success:

C:Documents and SettingsAdministratorDesktopRed.ico

in script:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=C:Documents and SettingsAdministradorDesktopRed.ico

remembering, it works perfectly if ico files are in the same folder

Note: The Icon is not what appears in the exe, but that appears at the bottom of my form

Try adding quotes around the filename/path statement, there are spaces in it that might be throwing it off.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Documents(here?) and(here?) Settings

i try:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=E:Red.ico

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=E:Green.ico

In example of autoit:

; Example 1

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=C:Program FilesAutoIt3Iconsau3.ico

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=C:Program FilesAutoIt3Iconsfiletype1.ico

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=C:Program FilesAutoIt3Iconsfiletype2.ico

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=C:Program FilesAutoIt3Iconsfiletype3.ico

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=C:Program FilesAutoIt3Iconsfiletype-blank.ico

So the problem must lie in what I call my icon.

I am calling like he was in the directory,

$Icon1 = GUICtrlCreateIcon("Red.ico", -1, 24, 216, 24, 24)

Is there another way to call him him being included in the exe?

If you are trying to use the icon in that function, you can't refer to it by it's filename because it isn't in your script directory, it's embedded in your exe file. You have to use your script name as the source @ScriptFullPath and a reference to the icon in it. Look at this page for an example of how to use an embedded icon.
