For a normal GUI application you can change the application icon from Project - Options. For console mode applications this section is disabled - and thus all console mode application have a default icon.

Are you creating a "VCL Forms Application" or "Console application" ?

That button should be enabled if you are using VCL Forms Application. In Console application that button will be disabled, to be able to change the icon of a console application check the link in my last post 34121667.

As per the attached pic. which one you have selected to start your application ?

Try a new project by selecting "VCL Forms Application", I think in the Dutch version it is "VCL Forms-Anwendung" then go and check:

menu->project->option->application->symbol

i wonder if it is something to do with the registry?
