Change the icon on Windows?

Hello Jan

(Sorry for not coming back to you earlier).
I tried your suggestion - change the extension from .bmp to .ico - but 
in the properties window for my .exe (standalone) file I have no button 
for changing the icon. But if I make a "shortcut" I can change that icon 
in the properties window. But just only for the shortcut.

I also looked around on Download.com -- but everything I tried was only 
for creating icons.  You don't happens to know the name of a app that 
can do what need?
