Oh that was even easier than I thought.

Thank you for your time and help

BTW I think the reference to 8E underneath must 5 instead (or skip step 4)...?

4. Right click on the extracted Application_Icon.ico file, and click on Properties, General tab, and on the Unblock button. (see screenshot below)
NOTE: If you do not have a Unblock button under the General tab, then the file is already unblocked and you can continue on to step 8E.

You're most welcome.

Thank you for pointing that out. It seems that I missed it in the last updating of that tutorial.
