[SOLVED] wxWidgets, ahem, PCem main icon misplaced

Yesterday I built pcem from the latest source code but today I was more awake and I realized that the main icon (the wxWidgets default icon) was missing, it has gone along with all other resources to libpcem.dll and now Windows has to show a generic executable icon in explorer, taskbar, shortcuts, etc.

Having to fix that I think it would be a great opportunity to add its own icon to PCem and make this project stop sharing the main icon with a zillion other projects.
In my humble opinion the base icon used for the configuration manager buttons would be a good choice, assuming such file still exists :roll:

For those who do not know what icons I am talking about these are the icons used in the buttons of the configuration manager:

the wx default icon in the low color pixel form happens to resemble 3 crewmates nowadays...

I totally forgot to move wx.rc to the actual executable. I fixed it in a maintenance commit.

But yes, it be nice to get a logo of some sort instead of the WX Default Icon.
