Hello Friends,

This is done by prescribing the icon and file type in registry. First of all, you need to register the file type in system registry. On top of that, a file type icon can be specified. This .REG file will give you the idea: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8407066/how-do-i-associate-a-filetype-with-an-icon[^].

If you did not create file associations yet, learn it starting from this Microsoft article: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/cc144148%28v=vs.85%29.aspx[^].

To work with registry, please see: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.win32.registry.aspx[^].

VB
Dim rk As RegistryKey
        Dim path As String
        path = Application.StartupPath & "\RES\paradox.ico"
        rk = Registry.ClassesRoot.CreateSubKey(".paradox\DefaultIcon")
        rk.SetValue("DefaultIcon", path)


This is the key and value to be set
   
Hi,

Can you say clearly.
Is yours is Web Application or Windows Application?
If Web application, the Icon file will be displayed at the Browser Tab.
If Windows Application, the Executable file installed will have the specified Icon.

What you actually mean by "Icon to specific file type", do you use same file types as .txt,.mp3,.doc or your own file extensions?

Thanks!

Icons to specific file type means, like .txt file has it's own default icon and .mp3 files have thir own icons and so on
