Script Packaging Step-by-Step: Adding icons to your application

This article in our Script Packaging Step-by-Step series explains how to add icons to your application.

Every packaged script gets a default icon assigned, which is the icon shown for that executable in Windows Explorer, or in the task bar when running. You can, of course, change that icon to something a little more representative than the default icon.

Icons are managed in Packager > Icon Files:



You can find a selection of icons in C:\ProgramData\SAPIEN\Stock Icons, courtesy of our friends at



You can also add additional icons to give your user more choices when they create a shortcut. Or perhaps your installer adds multiple shortcuts with different parameters to the user’s desktop, using different icons to distinguish them.
