Compiled scripts get extra icons

5 posts in this topic

For quite some time, I've noticed many of my compiled scripts get extra icons defined whenever I specify a custom icon with #AutoIt3Wrapper_Icon=.

I've attached an example of what Windows shows for Properties >> Change Icon.  This particular case has the original and 3 extras.  But others only have the "+box" as an extra.  I'll mention that I haven't seen any extras other than the red X, the "+box" and a blank icon.

Can anyone explain where these are coming from and how to eliminate them?

Thanks in advance for any help.

qwert,

These "additional" icons have been present since I have been using AutoIt. The "red X" is used to indicate a  "paused script" in the tray icon - possibly if you remove the default tray menu by using Opt("TrayMenuMode", 1) they are not automatically included.

M23, thanks for your quick response.

Indeed, that makes sense.  The ones (of mine) that don't have the red X don't use the default tray menu.  I'll be able to add that statement to others.

The "+box" is not so bad.  But maybe, someday, there can be an option to omit it as a choice.  I can't imagine any user selecting it as a desktop icon.  It just seems to introduce an element of doubt in a user's mind... as in "what is that for?".

Thanks, again.

@VIP: thanks for the suggestion.  I had no idea you could remove so many elements from a compiled script.  I was able to remove all three extra icons from one of my scripts ... and even edit some of the embedded messages, as a test.

It seems to be working just fine.  I'll keep close watch for problems.
