IS Express how to change msi icon

Hello I have install shield express 2019 and I cannot figure out how to change the msi icon. Even when I go to Releases>CD-ROM>Setup.exe I cannot find an option to change the icon image of the msi installer.

I don't think that this is possible. The standard icon for a MSI package is defined in the registry and is applicable to all MSI packages by the OS. You can change the default icon for MSI packages in the system registry with file type associations, but all files with .MSI extension will get same icon on that machine.

As a work around, you can try using 'SingleImage' compressed build option in your express project (which streams msi into setup.exe) and then you can change the icon for your setup.exe file.

How can I change the setup.exe icon? When I go to the releases and click on setup.exe i dont see the option. Does that not come with express

You are right, Express edition doesn't have option to change icon for setup.exe.
