icon visible in started form but not in win. explorer

P: n/a
Hello,

I'm sure this must be an easy one for most people:

I made a program (vb .net) with one form.
I changed the icon property to a nice icon.
* When I start the exe file the icon is displayed correctly.
* in the windows explorer the exe file is displayed with the default .exe
"icon".

How can I correct this?

Best regards, Jurgen Oerlemans

Go to the properties for the Project (Project > Properties) and then go to
"Build" under "Common Properties". You can then select the icon for the
application.

In VB.NET, you'll have to specify the icon used for the executable in
the project's properties dialog.
