If you have icon properties that you set a design time, like the form icon, or an image list, those icons are included in the executable and do not need to be externally accessed.

If you want to set the form's icon, set the icon property.

If you want to have several icons to use for a toolbar or something, add an imagelist to the form.  Then go into its custom property's and add all of the images you want.  You can then pull up that image using it's index in the imagelist.
