Using IcoFX you can extract icons from exe files and save them as separate icon files.
To extract icons from exe or dll files follow these steps:
1. Start IcoFX
2. Open the exe or dll file using the "File/Extract..." menu item. The Extract dialog will appear showing all the icons that the file contains.
3. Select the icon(s) that you would like to extract and press the "Extract" button.
You can select more files if you hold down the Ctrl key when clicking on an icon.
4. The icons will be opened in IcoFX. Save the files using the "File/Save" menu item.
You can extract more icons without the need to save them separately using the Batch Extract Icons or Cursors dialog ("Tools/Batch Extract Icons or Cursors..." menu item).
For more information about the Extract or Batch Process dialog consult the help file of IcoFX.
