Message1. How to assign Icon file to executable?

Hey gang,

   I already know how to assign a little corner icon for the various windows of my program, but what I can't figure out is how to assign an icon file to the main executable itself.  You know, so when you click on the executable to launch it, you click on a cool, little picture instead of the default "application" image of a blue and white box.

   When I use:
$RESOURCE My_ICO AS "My_icon.ico"
Application.ICOHandle = My_ICO

   All I get is an assignment for the internal windows of the program.  Anyone know what command sets the icon for the exterior appearance of the exectuable itself?

Here is how I do it:

$INCLUDE "icon_filename.ico"

And then, click on the icon, right by the 'Code It!' button.  A box will open, where you can choose the icon that you want--but it must be the same as the icon in the $INCLUDE section.  The icon will then change to the one that you chose, and the next time you run the program, the old .EXE will be replaced by the new one with the icon you selected.

Remember, the icon can't be larger than 766 bytes (4 bit 16 color...or something like that)

You can get rid of the other code that you have regarding the icon.  If you use this code, the icon will be applied to the .EXE, to the left on the title bar, and at the bottom on the taskbar.

Thank you *very* much, Jon.  It works like a charm.  And that was the last little detail that was holding my programs back from having that polished, professional look.
