Icon gone

Hello,

I've got a problem with my icon. I recently created a test installer and linked it with my *.ico file [via Icon "${icon}" ]. This worked fine but when I tried this with my prod. Installer (about 900 Mb large) the icon-option didn't work.

I searched google and got to know that larger files do have problems with this but could not find any solution for this problem.

Is there another way to link my ico-file with my installer?

Thanks in advance.

This is most probably caused by your virusscanner. When windows tries to access the .exe file to determine its icon, the virusscanner kicks in and locks the file until it has scanned it for viruses. Either be patient and wait till windows can access the icon (if ever), or set your virusscanner to not scan files larger than, say, 100MB.

I have the same problem.
My install file's size is about 1100Mb.
Icon is attached well when the file size is smaller.

I kill all of my anti-virus programs. but it does not work.
what should I do now?

Well, I tried but because english is not my native language I have sometimes my problems searching for the correct terms.

Hm...Well, because this is OS specific there is probably nothing I can do. Thanks for the support.
