When building for Windows, cmake generated executables do not contain application icon.
First, create an empty
.rc file in your project, say
bt.rc and fill with the following content:
IDI_ICON1 ICON DISCARDABLE "icon.ico"
icon.ico into the same folder. This is the folder where your
CMakeLists.txt should add the
.rc file as the last argument i.e.
add_executable (bt "bt.cpp" bt.rc)
Note that it cannot be in filters but has to be explicitly the last argument!
