    Sorry, but your title says about exe files. I belive these are application launch files in Windows, but there are no exes on Mac. If you work on a mac you should know that. Mac's apps have extension .app

    Now to change an icon of any document/folder/application you need to open Get Info winodow from the File menu in Finder or press Command-I, then select the small icon on the top-left and paste another one :)

    Create and .icns file using Icon Composer (part of XCode), put it in the Resources folder of the application bundle. Don't forget to define the icon in the app builder.

    I think he's talking about a C++ program without an application bundle.

    The only way, AFAIK, is to use the copy/paste method mentioned above.
