Windows 7: Every new library is missing "iconReference"

Every new library is missing "iconReference"

Every time I make a new library the icon is the same general one. If I set the lib type to one of the specific ones the icon stays the same. If I open the lib in notepad I can verify that the iconReference xml tag is missing. What can I do to fix this? I have just run a scan for corrupted windows files which came up clean.

Take a look thru this -

Quote:
NOTE: If this is a new Library that you have created, then the line will not be there and you will need to add the <iconReference>"path to icon w/file extension"</iconReference> line directly under the <isLibraryPinned>-1</isLibraryPinned> line entry.

So are you saying new libraries are suppose to have the same generic icon?

I didn't say that anywhere. I was responding to your missing iconreference line, and how to fix it, but yes, every new library you make will have the same generic icon for it. You'll have to change them to custom if you want. With the tutorials I posted.

No need to get defensive. It was just a question for confirmation. Thank you for helping.
