    Question Free Exe Icon Changer?

    Does anyone know of a free .exe icon changer? Because the .exe files that are created with Visual Studio don't have an icon and I want to put my own icon.

    I use Axialis IconWorkshop 6.0. Its pretty good, but if you want to set an icon for your program, programaticaly check out some of the windows APIs, SendMessage with WM_SETICON.

    The problem with Resource Hacker is that when I open the .exe file, nothing shows up for me to change like it does with any other .exe file that already has an icon. I guess I need a program that can add an icon even if the .exe file doesn't already have one.
