Well, you need to goto resource view in VC++ editor, then find the current ICON (should be named IDR_MAINFRAME in case of MFC project) and either paste the ICON picture into it Or add new icon and name it IDR_MAINFRAME (ofcourse you will need to rename old IDR_MAINFRAME first).

mu dear my problem is different i want to change the icon programatically bcoz this setup.exe is going to be generated at run time so i want to write some code snippet which wil take exe file path and icon file path as parameter and will change the icon
