He wants to use the desktop.ini method to change the icon so it will always follow the folder. I have never done it myself, and am not much help during the week.

You followed all the instructions? Made the folder a system folder, etc.? It should work if it was done correctly, step by step.

New folder.zip

Give this a try, it should have a 7Zip logo.

I have no solution for you, Sorry.
I tried my own folder and transferred it to another PC, it didn't hold the icon.
