No it doesn't, you have to create a Win32 project, make a window and then make it change the icon at runtime.. The point is I dont need to try it because im not the one with the problem, hes the one who should be putting in the effort to test it, im just giving suggestions.
Is there a simple way to do this in Dev-Cpp? There doesn't seem to be an area to compile linked .ico's into the project. I have tried using IconFX but it cannot add icons to a project that has already been compiled.
