How to extract an icon form an application (using IcoFX)
IcoFX (http://icofx.ro) is a very powerful icon editor that can be used to create and modify icon files.
It also can be used to extract icons form applications.
Normally IcoFX must be installed, but there is also a portable version available that can be used without having to install it (nothing will be modified on your system).
Here we describe the usage of the portable version only.
Double click the downloaded file.
The assistant will now prompt you for a folder, where the portable application will be copied to.
This can be any folder of your choice like (like C:\temp\IcoFX) but also an USB device.
The installer will place some files in this folder directly, so you should create a separate folder named "IcoFX".
Starting IcoFX Portable
Just double click the file IcoFXPortable in the folder where you have unpacked IcoFX (like C:\temp\IcoFX).
Extracting an Icon
Before you can extract an icon from an application you have to find out where the application is stored.
Most applications are stored in the folders:
C:\Program FilesC:\Program Files (x86)
Search in these folders for the name of your application.
To extract an icon perform the following steps in IcoFX:
Now select the icon you want to extract
Some applications have multiple icons stored, here you have to select the icon that is also shown on your desktop or in your start menu.
This should normally be the top-left icon in the list.
@OLLI_S ; May I suggest that you release your version even if not perfect.
Agile way of life. 🙂
You have to get a valid pair of key to sign code*. Then you use the private key to sign your code. The way you do it is depending of you compiler. I know to do it for macros. And more than 10 years ago I knew how to do it with Visual Studio (was it Studio ?). Quite sure you will find this very quickly in help of your compiler.
you can get needed keys at Cacert if you are assured by some assurers. Only recognize if you trust Cacert root but free and better than nothing.
@OLLI_S I changed it so we recommend the version that is available for download, despite other parts of the website recommending another version. That other place on the website also doesn't mention anything about beta versions.
We will not start monitoring the forums and thus beta versions, since you are the only user of this software.
