Hey guys, I have a quick question. I have an icon that I would like to associate with my .exe. I created a new resource in visual C++ 6.0 and imported my icon. Here's where I'm stuck. How do I actually get the resource to compile with my program so that my .exe will have my icons picture on it? I looked through the msvc help and msdn and they were no help at all. Thanks in advance for your responses. Cyber

The icon used for the exe file is always the first icon in the resource section. The icon used for the window is whichever one you send to CreateWindow(Ex) when you create it.
