digitalmars.D - icons (resources) in win32 D executable?

Is this possible... to link some icons with the executable so it has 
icon when I see in the explorer. Or (if it is not the same) link other 
resources like bitmaps or whatever...

If you have some kind of resource editor that can produce .res files, then 
you're set.  Just create a .def file with the following lines:

EXETYPE NT
SUBSYSTEM WINDOWS
RC resourcefilename.res

Then put the name of the .def file on the compiler command line along with 
all your .d files.  I don't know much about Windows resources, but I believe 
that the first icon it finds will be used as the program icon.

Also, you cannot use .rc files - you must use compiled .res files.

I will try that. Thank you.
