How do I create icon DLL files?

GConvert can convert icon libraries (in ICL format) to true Win32 DLL files that can be loaded using the Windows API function named LoadLibrary, and then used with other API functions such as LoadIcon; thus icons may be directly accessed from your applications.

  1. Open the icon library file (ICL format) or the Zip archive (.zip) that you want to compile into a DLL.
  2. click the "Library|Compile Library to a DLL file (32-bit)" menu command.
  3. Enter the filename for the output DLL file and press OK.

Your DLL file is now generated and you can even open it in GConvert.
