    Edit the resource file that your program uses.

    An icon is a "resource"

    A resource is something that's included in the exe file, but is not executable machine code. (Icons, cursors, bitmaps)

    First, you have to have a resource script included in your build.
    The Icon has to be part of that resource script.

    Here's the sequence (maybe not 100% accurate?):

    Add To Project
    Resource Script (name it)
    Icon (new, import etc.)
