When you compile an exe you just need to browse the icon in the Custom Resources and that's it. You don't need to Include it.

I did a test and found 2.5 makes a 30k program about 90-100k

unless you add an icon!

Then it puts the entire icon in your program per it's size.

My 90-100k program jumps to 170+ with an 80k icon. So if you embed an icon, be sure you use a small one.

By the way, you can use Axialis IconWorkshop to create or modify icons if you want...icons for Windows or Mac...and you can choose different formats like 16,32 or 64 bit. Vista compatible also.

You can download the free trial on:
