[gme-users] Changing Interpreter Icons

Hi Jennifer,

For C++ interpreters, the icon is compiled by the resource compiler and
linked into your interpreter.dll. The default icon is called
CompIcon.ico. You can replace the contents of that file with the icon
you want, or change Component.rc to reference a different filename. Be
sure to compile Component.rc; you may need to do it manually, since
Visual Studio is bad at picking up changes external to the .rc file.

C++ interpreters tell GME where the icon is with this call:

For C# interpreters, you should change value of the iconName variable in

C# interpreters tell GME where the icon is with this call:
ComponentConfig.progID, "Icon", ComponentConfig.iconPath);

The above method is preferable. If you have to change it without
changing the code, you set the Icon REG_SV value under
HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\GME\Components\[Progid]\ or its HKCU

Hi All,

I have written a bunch of interpreters for GME. The problem is that all
of the icons are the same so I have to hover over each one until I find
the one with the name that I want. Does anyone know of a way that I can
customize the icons?
