Juni:
Nice Demo ty  :)

( I had to change the icon in the .ppj to Pelle_Orinius.ico )

Vortex:
Here is another version :


--- Code: ---#include <windows.h>

/* Check BuildLib.lib and kernel32.def to build kernel32v2.lib exporting the SetConsoleIcon function */

BOOL WINAPI SetConsoleIcon(HICON hIcon);

int main( int argc, char **argv )
{
HICON hIcon=LoadIcon(GetModuleHandle(0),MAKEINTRESOURCE(200));

  MessageBox(0,"Click the message box to change the console icon","Test",MB_OK);
 
    SetConsoleIcon(hIcon);
 
    MessageBox(0,"Console icon changed","Test",MB_OK);

return 0;
}

--- End code ---

I'm trying to get this to work in Visual Studio 2017. The generated EXE runs and says "Cool Work Timo. Best Icon loaded", but doesn't change the console icon.  Is it possible it doesn't work in 64 bit WIN10?

I'm new to VS (and very rusty in C), am I supposed to set these options somewhere?


--- Quote ---#pragma lib "user32.lib" // needed for LoadIcon in SetConsoleIcon function

--- End quote ---
This #pragma is unknown

I'm going to keep hammering at it but with any luck someone will take pity and point me to the solution.
