Saving an Extracted ICON from DLL/EXE to a ICO file

returns Handle to Icon)

RE: Saving an Extracted ICON from DLL/EXE to a ICO file

Never tried it myself so this is just a reference to save you the search in MSDN
(which is probably the source of all knowledge).

1) if you want to SAVE your icon into dll/exe lookup UpdateResource API
2) to save into .ico file lookup IPicture::SaveAsFile - this is a COM API but there
   are examples.
3) icons general info : lookup
