    file icon


    is there anyway i can asociate my program with a file ending, like .property so that every .property file has a certain icon on the desktop, and also opens my program automatically?

    Yes.

    Open "My Computer", and go to Tools -> Folder Options -> File Types -> New.

    Make a new extension for .property, and click OK.
    Choose "Opens with "... to make it open with your program.
    Choose "Advanced" to give it a custom icon.
