Below is the function you should use in your application. The function is easy to use. Just look up the declaration in the api-viewer and paste it in you app. The explanation of the variables are given below.
If you need an example, just give a comment and I'll post you one.


ExtractIcon
---------------
The ExtractIcon function retrieves the handle of an icon from the specified executable file, dynamic-link library (DLL), or icon file.

HICON ExtractIcon(
   HINSTANCE hInst,                            // instance handle
   LPCTSTR lpszExeFileName,         // filename of file with icon
   UINT nIconIndex                                // index of icon to extract
);



Parameters
----------------
hInst
Identifies the instance of the application calling the function.

lpszExeFileName
Points to a null-terminated string specifying the name of an executable file, DLL, or icon file.

nIconIndex
Specifies the index of the icon to retrieve. If this value is 0, the function returns the handle of the first icon in the specified file. If this value is -1, the function returns the total number of icons in the specified file.

Return Values
-------------------
If the function succeeds, the return value is the handle to an icon. If the file specified was not an executable file, DLL, or icon file, the return is 1. If no icons were found in the file, the return value is NULL.
