Portable Exe

toasttoast Member Posts: 29
I have an exe which I created using an old version of Turing and I want to change its icon. I've tried a few programs, but they tell me that in order to change the icon the exe must be portable. Is there a way around this? I've been doing some reading on the topic, and looking for a program to make an exe portable but with no success. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

    Making such changes to a program involves disassembling the program, and changing the code to use config files instead of the registry, change library dependencies, change directory paths, remove/change API dependencies, etc.
    Since these changes require a lot of insight in the program code, they cannot be done automatically. Therefore you will not find any program to make other programs portable.
