comment Can I set an icon for for an application registered under OpenWith?
I can also write a little AHK (Autohotkey) script to encapsulate the command line and compile it with their compiler. But the object was to see how far I could go in creating an "Application" with just an interpreter, a script, and some config. Each script would be a different "application".

I was hoping for a niftier way that I just couldn't find documentation for. The interpreter icon doesn't bother me so much that I can't live with it. As long as it has the title that I wanted, which it does.

There is no scriptapp.exe. It is simply the entry under Applications so that I can use a Perl script as an OpenWith entry. That would require me to change the icon for Perl, and the whole idea was to deploy more scripts as "OpenWith Apps".

@harrymc, I do not want to change the icon of the script interpreter, that seems overkill.

@and31415, cool article, but doesn't seem to have worked.

@harrymc, that has to do with giving the file type an icon. I want to know if I can set the icon in an OpenWith list or dialog. Because the interpreter of the script is the executable, I just get the interpreter's icon.
