How to extract icon of an exe/dll file?

Hi all,

the program I'm coding is an Icon Changer,
I want to extract icons of an exe or a dll, and then apply it on another exe file,

I already know how to apply icons on a file, I'm using MadRes to do so (http://help.madshi.net/madResUnit.htm),

but my problem is when I want to take off icons of a file (to apply them on another one), I only get bad quality icons, so yea, I can extract icon, but it's a very bad quality,

so how extracting all icons from a file in his original quality?

also, if I want to apply them to another exe file after, all extracted icons must be in just one .ico I think (to use it with madRes)

thx a lot in advance.
