  • Icon in add /remove program list

    I am currently installing 3 programs with custom icons using the most current version of setup factory. My question is, how do I specify which icon to use in the add/remove program list? Currently, it seems to randomly choose the icon because I have seen each icon in this list while testing. Any help would be appreciated. (I am testing with Windows 2000 Pro)

    In reality, I really don't know how Windows decides what icon to use. However I believe the following will work for you:

    Create a new value in the Registry in the following location:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Uninstall\YourProduct

    Create a value called "DisplayIcon".
    Then as it's data, have the full path to your executable, followed by a comma and then the icon index integer.

    You can also use a path to an icon file.

    I've seen reference to needing a minus sign before the index, however I couldn't seem to get that to work, and I'm not sure what it meant.

    Anyway, give that a try.
