Maybe with FileCreateShortcut() ?

I think OP wants the *.ico file that goes to the *.exe file? If that is the case just copy it to the desktop.

All by me:

"As you teach others, you are really teaching yourself."

No I want to extract a icon file to exe

Example-> utorrent.exe -> utorrent.ico (The icon file to Exe)

_WinAPI_ExtractIconEx don't work or I don't know how to use it.

You want to use an icon for your exe?

EDIT

13. How can I use a custom icon when compiling my scripts?

You need to run the full compiler program (rather than just right-clicking a script and selecting compile).

When you compile a script it will let you create a custom icon that you can then use for your program

think hes meaning he wants to generate a .ico from an .exe, but if you have the .exe why cant you just make a shortcut on the DT and you get the icon.
