Question:
How do I Extract an icon from another executable or dll in code?

Answer:
Use the Windows API function ExtractIcon(), passing it the instance
handle of your application, the path name of the application you wish
to extract the icon from, and the number of the icon you wish to
extract.

Example:

var
  TheIcon: TIcon;
begin
  TheIcon := TIcon.Create;
  TheIcon.Handle := ExtractIcon(hInstance,
                                'C:\SOMEPATH\SOMEPROG.EXE',
                                0);
 {Do something with the icon}
  TheIcon.Free;
end;
