To solve NetBeans RFE #64612 without manual steps I need a Java (6+) library which can take an existing Windows *.exe file and replace its icon with a substitute in a common format. The executable, which is generic and prebuilt (distributed in binary form), already knows how to load an application-specific config file and then start the JRE with various application JARs etc.; the only problem is that it has a generic icon, and I would like to replace that icon as part of a pure Java build with an application-specific icon, so it looks prettier.
Does anyone know if a tool matching these specifications already exists? From various web searches I found Launch4J, but this appears to just fork windres for the real work, thus not trivially portable. I found JSmooth which looks more promising - appears to include Java code to handle the ICO codec and manipulate PE files - but it is GPL. WinRun4J looks to use native code for icon manipulation, though I had a hard time following its sources. Jimi supposedly handles the ICO format (for that matter the standard javax.imageio seems to as well) but I guess has no facility for updating PE resources.
The first step to building an executable version of this project is to add the entry-point script. Luckily, the feed reader project is well structured, so all you need is a short script outside the package to run it. For example, you can create a file called cli.py alongside the reader package with the following code:
This is a way to avoid your executable, spec file, and build artifact folders being named after your entry-point script. --name is useful if you have a habit of naming your entry-point script something like cli.py, as I do.
As mentioned earlier, you can reuse the automatically generated .spec file to further customize your executable. The .spec file is a regular Python script that implicitly uses the PyInstaller library API.
As you saw above, you might encounter problems when running your executable. Depending on the complexity of your project, the fixes could be as simple as including data files like the feed reader example. However, sometimes you need more debugging techniques.
By default, the exported project's icon will be the Godot icon.You will most likely want to change that for your project. There are two typesof icons that can be changed on Windows: the file icon and the taskbar icon.
Windows does not use formats such as png or jpg for application icons. Instead,it uses a Windows-only format called ICO. You can create your application iconin any program but you will have to convert it to an ICO file using a program suchas GIMP.
There are known issueswhen changing the application icon in executables that embed a PCK file.It's recommended to avoid using rcedit for now if you choose to enable theEmbed Pck option for your Windows export preset in the Export dialog.
Windshift has used icons mimicking MS Office files to mask malicious executables. Windshift has also attempted to hide executables by changing the file extension to ".scr" to mimic Windows screensavers.
For this example we're going to start with a simple skeleton app, which doesn't do anything interesting. Once we've got the basic packaging process working, we'll extend the application to include icons and data files. We'll confirm the build as we go along.
