I'm a hobbyist and new to the D language. With a lot of help
from various online resources, I finally figured out how to load
an icon from:
1. A file "icon.ico" (this was easy)
2. A Program extension from the Windows registry, e.g. "*.inf"
3. A linked resource from the exe itsself (very hard)
I learned how to add an icon to the exe with a compiled Resource
Now I can load this embedded icon as the shell icon.
And I don't have to distribute a separate ico file with my exe.
I added a couple of simple bat files to compile with either dmd

I hope this helps another newbie like me.
Constructive feedback is welcome.
