Electron packaging questions for Windows


#1
  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?


#2

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


#3

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’
