Is there anybody who knows how to load an Icon in the Windows Console
applications.
I work with the dmd, and it concerns 32 bit Windows Console
applications.

Do you want to have a custom icon to show up with the executable in Windows Explorer? I'm not sure what you want to do, but you might need to use a resource script and resource compiler: rcc resource.rc -v -32 dmd pgm.d resource.res Below is a sample resource script (resource.rc) and the C header file that it depends upon. I hope this might help. jcc7 === resource.rc === #include "resource.h" 1000 ICON MOVEABLE PURE LOADONCALL DISCARDABLE pgmIcon 1 VERSIONINFO FILEVERSION pgmMajVer, pgmMinVer, pgmBuild, 0 PRODUCTVERSION pgmMajVer, pgmMajVer, pgmBuild, 0 FILEOS 0x4 FILETYPE 0x1 BEGIN BLOCK "StringFileInfo" BEGIN BLOCK "040904B0" BEGIN VALUE "LegalCopyright", pgmCopyright VALUE "FileDescription", pgmFileDescription VALUE "Author", "J C Calvarese" VALUE "CompanyName", pgmCompanyName VALUE "ProductName", pgmTitle VALUE "FileVersion", pgmVersion VALUE "ProductVersion", pgmVersion VALUE "InternalName", pgmInternalName VALUE "OriginalFilename", pgmOriginalFilename END END BLOCK "VarFileInfo" BEGIN VALUE "Translation", 0x0409, 0x04B0 //0x0409 0x04B0 END END === resource.h === #define pgmTitle "pgm" #define pgmInternalName "pgm" #define pgmOriginalFilename "pgm.exe" #define pgmFileDescription "Does Something" #define pgmVersion "0.0.1" #define pgmMajVer 0 #define pgmMinVer 0 #define pgmBuild 1 #define pgmCopyright "(c) 2002 Some One" #define pgmCompanyName "My Software Company" #define pgmIcon "pgm.ico" #define ID_ICON 1000

I have a custom icon for Walnut, but I used a weird RC - use one that comes
with dmd for brownie points:

Check icon.rc and icon.ico, as well as the makefile:
