Electron packaging questions for Windows

  1. Is it possible to change the icon of the .exe file in the packaged app without using some hacking methods?

  2. Is it possible to make the app a single executable file (like the demo program downloaded from the home page) without using another program to create installer?


“Developers wishing to add branding and custom icon can rename and/or edit the Electron executable file.”


using electron-packager you can specify icon and some metadata e.g:
–icon resources/appIcon.ico --win32metadata.CompanyName=‘Hot Dogs LTD’ --win32metadata.ProductName=‘Hot Dogs’
