Windows 7: Programs other than Microsoft ones can't read desktop.ini

Programs other than Microsoft ones can't read desktop.ini

Hi, folks!

A few days ago, I decided to give Folderico a try and changed some of my icons. In fact, I tried the two Folderico programs available on the net:

One was the Shedko Folderico 4 RC12 (Shedko Folderico 4 RC12 | Shedko software) and the other was FolderIco (FolderIco).

Unfortunatelly, one of these programs doesn't have a restore function, and the restore function of the other program didn't seem to work.

To make the long story short, after a lot of painfull work and headaches, I manage to discover how to bring my default icons back. But now, something strange is happening...

The Explorer itself and Microsoft programs like Word, they seem to read the desktop.ini file in the "Program Files (x86)" folder correctly. In this case, it means that it appears to me as "Arquivos de programas (x86)", as Portuguese is my default operation system language.

But other programs, like Foxit PDF Editor, InFix PDF Editor and Resouce Hacker (just to give you some examples), seem to be unable to read the desktop.ini file in that particular folder. In this case, it means that the folder appears to me with its real name "Program Files (x86)".

I'm struggling with it for days and I don't no whatelse to do...

I hope someone here can help me!

Thanks in advance to all!

PS.: I attached an example of what is happening...
