    Default Extract/Use another exe's icon

    Hi, im trying to use an external executable's icon, but cant't find a way to do it. I've see some apps that can do it but not coded with Qt.
    It's possible do this with Qt? I only need use the icon.

    Nothing to do with Qt.

    Assuming you are talking about Windows and you want to do this at runtime you can only do this with Windows API calls. Probably a combination of LoadIcon() after LoadImage() to open the other exe file.
