Hi,

You can do it.

1) Add a blank form to your activex exe project and this form, you are not going to show at anytime.
2) Go to property window of this dummy form, and set your icon file in the icon property of this dummy form.
3) Go to project property, go to the make tab, there you can see Icon combo box.  Here you select the dummy form you just added.
4) compile it.

Then you would get this icon with this exe.

Good luck.

Add resource file to project (use VB6 Resource Editor Add-in)
Add icon to resource file, it will have ID = 101
Change ID of icon resource to string:   ID ="0"
Save, Compile.
