|Icon is in the exe and that's what gives you the trouble |
Here is an easy way to get rid of that.
Download a tool called Resource Hacker.
It's free, needs no install, download it and run it.
Open Resource Hacker and load the exe file of your program
Now change the first Icon in the Icon section to your new Icon and save
Do this again so that all default Icons are changed to your new Icon
Make a shortcut of the exe and unbottle the champagne and everybody will hold you for a whizzy.
You can also send me the exe and I will do it for you
