I am trying to add an icon to my EA. When I try to compile the code #property icon “C:\Users\Goliath\Desktop\Advisor\Logo\AlphaSeeker.ico” I get the following error.
cannot open icon file ‘C:\Users\Goliath\Desktop\Advisor\C:\Users\Goliath\Desktop\Advisor\Logo\AlphaSeeker.ico’
I am not a programmer so all I see is gibberish when I read the how to guide. What did I do wrong? Below is the guidance I was trying to follow.
Specify the product version and its description in the code. In addition, a good idea is to add icons for your software as a graphical file in ICO format. This gives your product a professional finished look and allows the trader to easily find it from other compiled EX5 files:
#property icon path_to_icon_file
Properties of MQL5 programs are defined by the #property directive. All the graphical and sound files needed to run the program, can be placed in the form of resources directly into the executable file EX5. More information can be found in article “Use of Resources in MQL5”.
