Is there a free icon extractor utility ?

If so it will be nice to include it to "Tools" > tab "Create script" and "Desription"

Extractor from file, I think. For Example, utility HDDScan. Its icon inside file. Extractor allows you to take this icon as .ICO file. The file should be used as a logo for a shortcut creatrion.

I search Google, nothing free extractor. Your link are invalid it seems.

Shortcurts automaticly use the icon inside the *.exe as 'logo'.
No need to extract anything for that purpose!

It is great ! So we use third icon extractor only for customizing (using another icon). Is it right ?
And so, I thing will be for other documets. For example if I use some .RTF document and Wordpad script is installed, so icon for document shortcut will be present. Is it right ?

That saves me a lot of time when it is not necessary to use "WinModules", my current standard extractor.

You only need to extract an icon, if you want to use it in your PE,e but don't want to have the *.ex, *.dll in your PE.

For example if I use some .RTF document and Wordpad script is installed, so icon for document shortcut will be present. Is it right?

A shortcut is a link, which opens a program.
The icon that a document gets, is an association.
Though you can use the icon from inside the exe for that too, without extracting it first, an association has to be created, just like a shortcut. It doesn't happen by default or magic.
If the script does not contain the commands to create any associations, the document will not get an icon or open with the right program when double clicked.

Works, but not so obvious. I had to tinker. :) Select image > copy > menu Image > create new empty image > Paste > save as.
