For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

1. Insert/Resource/Icon (Import or New)
2. File/Save (save .rc file as e.g. myapp.rc)
3. Project/Add to project/Files (browse for myapp.rc)
4. Build the application


...forgot to add, it is usually a good idea to include both 16x16 and 32x32 version; when in resource editor, select Image/New Device Image.

You really are the quickest trigger in this forum.
