This isn't your answer, I know.
I once tried Icon Packager (on 7) as it worked OK on my XP system. It changed all my .exe files to the Games (chess piece) icon. Then added overlays where I'd removed them etc.
I un-installed Icon packager.
I now do it the "manual" way i.e. edit my own files.

I make copies of my system files and then replace the icons I want to change in them using Res Hack 3.5.2 or Anolis Resourcer. I then rename the system file (add "old" to end of file name) then paste my now "modified" system files into their original folder.

If I just want to replace a file type icon I generally use File Types Manager from Nirsoft.
