You could manually check in regedit that the key is there and is identical to the manual method in Shawns tutorial. If all the above is correct rerun the icon cache rebuild just to be sure.
To be honest I'm out of suggestions. Brink may be able to add something when hes online later as he created the tutorial.
Sorry mate I see no reason why it wouldn't have worked for you.
Double check the above and let us know.
At last, it worked like a charm.
I knew it, I had done this fix many times on my 32bit OS, but I stumbled when I found I can't fix it as before. It was tricky. I was using Tera Copy as my Copy handler. I thought I copied Application_icon.ico to system32, when I was rechecking the file by pasting the file again, Tera Copy shows that the file already exists in System32 and asks me whether it wanted to overwrite it. So, I was sure, the file really exists there. But, when I checked System32 folder manually, the file doesn't exist! I was
! Then I disabled Tera Copy and used the default Windows file copy handler & the file copied without any prompt to overwrite it.
Then I killed the Explorer.exe process and started it again. Voila!!!
The problem solved. But, I'm still confused with Tera Copy's response. Why it didn't copy the file and asks me to overwrite the file which in fact the file doesn't exist.Unusual!
Thanks to Danny & Brink for helping me.
