I have never use that program but I just tried it and I put in the exact location of the .dll see the screenshot and went right to it.
C:\Windows\System32\wlanmm.dll

Yes Jerry, thats the directory I have changed, along with every dll I can find that has green wireless signal icons. Look at my 3rd or 4th post. You will see blue signal meter icons, but it is not changing them in the pop up.

The icons for the signal meter on the taskbar and the icons in the pop-up are in two different .dlls, did you changing icons in the wlanmm.dll in both C:\Windows\System32 and C:\Windows\SysWOW64

There's no need for the large font in your last post unless you have poor vision.

I replied on my phone, and did not realize the font was so big. I have changed icons in all the dll's. So there must be another program I have installed that is conflicting. I have customizer god installed also, I will take a look at that.

The only way I could get pniudi to take the new icon, was to use customizer god, I have changed everything in every dll, and pniui.dll and a few others are not taking the new icon. This screenshot was taken with everything restored. Note the stock wifi signal meters.

Are you Icon Cache - Rebuild and restarting after changing the .dll?

Use Windows Explorer and go to C:\Windows\System32 and copy the wlanmm.dll and pniudi.dll and zip them up and post here and I will look at them.

As soon as I copied those two files to my desktop, I checked them with resource hacker, and they both have stock icons? When I browse to system32, resource hacker shows my modified icons? Or when I browse them with Iconsext, it show the modified icons as well. So let me modify those two and replace them....Seems strange that resource hacker would show my modified icons.
