Compiler is compiling script with wrong icon

3 posts in this topic

Every time I compile an icon using the Script to EXE conversion tool, it displays the wrong icon.

I used a red toolbox icon long ago for a script, and now every single script I compile has this red toolbox as the icon.

Even if I select 'Default' and delete the red icon file from every location on my computer - it still appears as the icon for every script I compile.

 

Any ideas?

Send the compiled exe to another computer and check how the icon looks there.

This happens because Windows mantains in its cache the association between the name of the exe and the icon used by that exe.

If you compile the exe with a different name or you change the name to the existing exe, or you copy it to a different folder you can see that the correct icon will be applied because Windows will be forced to read again the icon inside the exe and will not use the copy in cache.
