Microsoft FoxPro versions 2.5 and 2.6 for Windows provide the ADDICON.APP application to associate icons to distributable .EXE files. However, ADDICON.APP does not ship with Visual FoxPro version 3.0. The functionality of adding icons to distributable .EXE files is built into the Visual FoxPro Project Manager.


Step-by-Step Example

To add an icon to a Visual FoxPro distributable .EXE file:

  1. Open an existing project or create a new one.
  2. From the Project menu, choose Project Info.
  3. Within the Project Information dialog box, select the Attach Icon to .EXE check box.
  4. Locate the icon file (.ICO) to attach to the executable file.
NOTE: Icon files (.ICO) may be created by using the Microsoft Image Editor (IMAGEDIT.EXE), which ships the Professional Edition of Visual FoxPro version 3.0.
