There are icon, bitmap, and other resource extraction programs which will do it. However, remember that those images are proprietary to Borland!  There would be issues with copyright infringment...

http://www.programmerstools.org/

Resource Grabber by Richey Fellner. 10.I.2003.
Resource Grabber 2.68d.

The Resource-Grabber will scan the directories and drives on your computer and extract all Bitmaps, Glyphs (button images), Icons, Cursors, Wave sound files, AVI Clips and Cursors it finds inside the programs and DLL files in any directory of your choice. Forget painting all that stuff by yourself; forget hours of searching for Windows-compatible button layouts ... simply use the images that are already on your computer ! The Resource-Grabber will extract them from their "hidden" locations inside DLL and EXE files and give you full access by saving them as regular bitmaps.


I would config it to just grabb from the delphi \bin folder

sounds nice :)

I downloaded the Resource-Grabber but I cannot use it. I have to register for 25$ :(
Do you know any free one?

thanks,
Bogdan

Did you try doing a search?

Cause when I do, I get literally hundreds of returns.....


www.google.com

Extract Icons From Exe & DLL

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=Extract+Icons+From+Exe+%26+DLL&btnG=Google+Search

Google Groups

Doing it from Delphi code

Not its your choice!

Heres another - freeware.... I just tried it, but its will only extract the icon that is in the main title bar, thats not what you want....

yes, i've tried some similar tools, but all of them worked with a file only.
after trying manually a lot of files without success i've posted here the question.
it would be great if i cand find one to search a directory recursively (whole directory).

You will need to - not only load the executables, but rather load the DLL's as well, this is were they will most likely be residing.....

Try Resource Hacker it works pretty good!

I already used Resource Hacker, but it works with single file only, Icon Snatcher is better.
but i still didn't find the menu icons :((

Thats because the program is an icon snatcher - and the menu and button images in delphi are bitmaps, not icons

Sorry = Thats Why you need a RESOURCE hacker not a icon hacker or Resource Grabber - it has to be able to attract Bitmaps as well

that would be great if you have one for "Exit" and one for "Execute" (XP style)
