Change App Icon In Visual Studio 2005?

I'd like to use a different icon for the demo version of my game, and I'm building the demo with a different build config than I do for the full verison, using a preprocessor define to lockout some content, use different graphics, etc. Is there a way that I can make Visual Studio use a different icon for the app Icon in the demo config but continue to use the regular icon for the full version's config?

According to this page you may use preprocessor directives in your *.rc file. You should write something like this

#ifdef _DEMO_VERSION_
IDR_MAINFRAME ICON "demo.ico"
#else
IDR_MAINFRAME ICON "full.ico"
#endif
