Get ICON from an EXE

13 posts in this topic

Hi,

Im trying to create an application launcher. But I need to create a button with the icon of the .exe the user chooses.

I did some search work but no result. I mean, I found topics about this but its not very clear.

Hope you understand ^^,

I've used some code from Smashly to extract an icon from the executable the user picks in my program Portable App Creator. Both are too large to explain here shortly, but if you're an experienced AutoIt user, you'll find what you want via those two links...

Still no solution found, mate? Or do you have what you need by now?

Let me know, and I might help you if you still need it.

cheers

Yeah, I saw that, but since there were a few hints posted some days ago, I thought you might have solved it.

Okay, let me check my scripts and I'll get back to you.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

GUICreate("GUI")
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("", 10, 20, 40, 40, $BS_ICON)
GUISetState ()

While 1
    $GUI_MSG = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $GUI_MSG
    Case -3
        Exit
    Case $button
        GUICtrlSetImage($button, FileOpenDialog("choose an exe", "", "Executables (*.exe)", 3), 1)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

works for me (with WinXP Pro SP3)

cheers
