ExtractIcon of other application

The ExtractIcon function retrieves a handle to an icon from the specified executable file, DLL, or icon file.

HICON hIcon;
hIcon = ExtractIcon( AfxGetApp()->m_hInstance, "C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\calc.exe", 0 );
SetIcon( hIcon, FALSE );

//You must destroy the icon handle returned by ExtractIcon by calling the DestroyIcon //function.
