How can I change programmatically the icon associated with an executable file.

If I compile my project, the application is receiving the first icon from the list.

The IDR_MAINFRAME icon has been removed and I can than change the frame icon dynamically but I want to change also the icone shown in the explorer window and desktop !

Any idea to do this ?
