    If you mean plain windows, a lot of compilers have a option to change the icon. If you are doing console, you have to make a pif file.

    Well I don't have any experience in VC++, but if it is like most Microsoft programs there is a huge searchable help file. Load up help and search for icons. There is probably a option you can use to add the icon to your program. I know Dev-C++ has one.
