Hello and welcome to Advanced Installer forums,
how to add icon to my application exe file
Icons can be set as follows:
- Control Panel Icon from Product Details Page
- Icon for your application's shortcut from Files and Folders page -> Shortcut Properties Dialog
- EXE installer Icon from Media page -> Configuration Tab

All the best,

Yes, sorry it seems I misplaced the link. The correct link is Shortcut Properties Dialog.
You can access this dialog if you double click a shortcut from the Files and Folders page or if you right click it and select Properties from its context menu.

Hello,
how can i add uninstall to my application folder and inside start menu.
Follow our user guide : How do I create a shortcut to the uninstaller in the program group?
if i want to rename my exe to my application name, where can i change it ?
From the Media page -> Configuration tab -> Output section where you changed the icon:

Code: Select all

EXE Name: [|ProductName]
All the best,
