Click Project/Options command. Switch to Application tab and press Load icon button. Select *.ico file you want and press open. After running your application will have new icon.
Hope it will help.

I don't want to change my own app's icon. I mean that I want to change the icon from an other application with my app, like resource hacker (http://www.users.on.net/johnson/resourcehacker/)

Using Delphi Expert 'Madshi's unit madRes it's fairly easy:

- BeginUpdateResourceW (exe file path)
- LoadIconGroupResourceW (new ico file path)
- EndUpdateResourceW

That's it. Just give in the correct parameters. Must be wide strings.

See here for documentation:
