i really don't like using resources so i was wondering if there was directly a way to add an icon to an application by type in the path of the icon. The tutorial gives me this but i can't get the resources to work so i was wondering whether there was a way to load the resource from location from the computer like "\\icons\\icon.ico".
WndClsEx.hIcon = LoadIcon(hInstance,
>>i really don't like using resources
"An application should implement custom icons as resources and should use the LoadIcon or LoadImage function, rather than create the icons at run-time. This approach avoids device dependence, simplifies localization, and enables applications to share icon bitmaps."
To load an image from disk use
hIcon = LoadImage(NULL,"c:\\somefolder\\icons\\ThisIcon.ic o",IMAGE_ICON,...,LR_LOADFROMFILE);
remember to call DestroyIcon() at close
