What is not working for you
Icon not replaced on EXE file.
Did you try the exact steps I mentioned because I downloaded the samples and saw that its working.
Also remember that you have more than one icon in many executable's and you may need to change each of them
Yes i use the sample exactly.actually i m working on Vista i dont think its generate any issue.
please help me for this.
Well, sorry if what i will be asking is not suite for this topic but how about String table? Can you give me some hint? Sorry again.
I didnt use the sample code. I copied the function onbuttonchangeicon() and modified the variables and used it in a console program. It succesfully changes icons for certain executables but not all. Anyways, the problem that bugs me is that if you copy the exe file to another location then the new icon is not visible. The old icon comes back. and if u again copy back the file into the original folder where it was initially, then it again regains the icon. So icon is not "locked" to the exe. Wht to do ??
There are multiple size icons in an exe and the code changes only one and so when you copy, you may be seeing different icon size. It is locked into the exe and you can verify that with Resource Hacker as well
I downloaded the source code , in the file ExeUpdatesDlg line 227 why you are looping the destination exe ?
I followed your tutorial but the icons are getting corrupted
I have the code attached :crazy:
GetLastError() is always returning zero - NO ERRORS -
The looping is because you can have multiple icons in the executable.
Separate names with a comma.
