Sorry for bringing back an old thread, but this is exactly what i'm trying to do and it doesn't seem to work anymore?

I'm trying to get them to work with RocketDock. It won't work from the app shortcut or adding them on the dock.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

They are ico file types, yes. Does it have to be irfanview in particular?

What i've been doing is making a shortcut to the program on desktop, changing the icon and just dragging it onto Rocketdock, just when I open it up it's the default icon

oh you just want to change the icon on rocketdock i see. you should just right click the icon and change the properties on it. i use object dock so i cant help on the specifics.

I've got nothing pinned. Doesn't make much sense. I just tried Object Dock as well and it does the same thing.
