How do you change the icons of application files? With a folder I just right click and go into the properties and change it but I can't figure out how do do this with application files.

The icon used is a resource of the application. You have to alter the resources, for instance by re-compiling with the new icon file (details depend on your IDE or compiler).

What i always do is i write a RC file with all that type of information for example :

The icon it will use.
The version of the program/game

Do u know how to write a RC file you can do it on 2 ways :

Easy Way : Open RC file Right click on the folder that has the name of your rc file for example : game than click insert and than icon.

Hard Way : Code it into the RC file by rightclicking on your rc file and click view code.
