you could try somethng like this...

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
       var
             SmallIco: TIcon;
             shfi: TShFileInfo;
           begin
             SmallIco := TIcon.Create;
              ZeroMemory(@shfi, SizeOf(shfi));
               ShGetFileInfo('D:\Windows\notepad.exe', 0, shfi, SizeOf(shfi), SHGFI_SMALLICON or SHGFI_ICON);
                 SmallIco.Handle := shfi.hIcon;
                   Application.Icon := SmallIco;
                    SmallIco.Free;
           end;
