Hi Guys,

I'm using MSI ("Click Twice") installer and I need to add an icon to the downloaded exe file.
Is there any way to get this done?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Ishanka,

Please try to set the Icon file field in the ClickTwice wizard. You can read more about ClickTwice in the Deploying Office extensions via ClickTwice article on our technical blog. Also please see the Add-in Express 2010 MSI-based web deployment: Publishing the application, part 2 article.

Hi Eugene,

Sorry, I should have been more specific.
Adding an icon from the click twice wizard will add that icon to the downloading window, not to the downloaded <<product>>.exe. I need to add an icon to the downloaded exe file.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Ishanka,

Thank you for the clarification.

There is no way to change the icon for the exe file. Please note that the ClickTwice downloader is not a custom application and belongs to ClickTwice. Instead, you can place your own icon to the downloading window.
