[App][2010.11.10] Png2Exe - Creates an exe file with an embedded image as icon.
Let's say you have a nice exe file, but the icon included in the file is rubbish (which is quite common because developers sucks at graphic work
This app can be used to create a launcher exe for that application with a image as the icon. It converts the image file (png,jpg,gif or bmp) into an ICON and inserts it into the EXE, so it can be used to set different icons as the ones provided in the original exe.
Really simple to use, takes 4 input values:
. Path of the original exe.
. Arguments to pass to the program.
. Path where the launcher will be created.
. Path for the image file used for the icon.
It allows to specify the arguments for the process, so it can be used to executing individual items on the control panel, or do more 'clever things' such as dialing up a phone number.
Thanks to Kucher for the idea and suggestions.
