adding custom icon to build

Post by klawson » Mon Oct 20, 2014 10:09 am

Can you point me to the documentation that describes how to add a custom icon to the package/installer? This is not working for me in version 4.1.71.
Thanks,
Ken

Can you explain what you do you mean by "not working for me in version 4.1.71"?

What are you expecting and what are you getting?

David,
I select a custom .ico file in the Packager and Installer settings menus and build an .msi, but the custom icon is not installed or used when I test the install.

The MSI icon is only display in the "Programs and Features" list in Windows. It doesn't actually change the MSI file's icon.

The Packager's icon is for the executable file, but if are using a GUI Form, you will have to set the Form's icon as well.

Here is an article covering the MSI installer.
