With kind permission from Mr GRiM, I thought I'd make an install script to make the installation of the excellent 'Mr GRiM's Glossy Blue Icon Pack' a lot easier for everyone.

It's a couple of batch files that run without aid from any other third-party applications. It runs from within your current Windows 7 setup without the need to boot into another operating system or without the need to enter Safe Mode either.

Here's the contents of the "README.txt" file...

Note   Note

I MUST stress that everyone who decides to use the installer should manually creates backups of the files affected themselves, just as a safety precaution with the script being new.
(The script does create backups and a System Restore Point but there is no harm in being extra safe!)

The affected files are as listed in the Readme.



'Glossy Blue' Download links:

Build 7100 X86 - Download -
Build 7100 X64 - Download -
* AIM problem now fixed!

Build 7264 X64 - Download -
Build 7600 X86 - Download -
Build 7600 X64 - Download -


'Black Glass' Download links:

Build 7600 X86 - Download -
Build 7600 X64 - Download -


New!- 'Ultimate' Download Links:

Build 7600 X86 - Download -
Build 7600 X64 - Download -


Note   Note

If anyone is trying to update or re-install and cant re-run the install because of a 'Already Installed' warning it's because the 'Delete_Backups._cmd' isn't being renamed automatically,

To fix this just rename the file 'Delete_Backups._cmd' to 'Delete_Backups.cmd' in the 'Data' folder and run it as admin.
(or use the download below in this note and run that as admin.)


(If you've downloaded the icons in the past and don't fancy re-downloading the whole pack, here's the new 'Cleanup' script separately, just place it in the 'Data' folder and run.)



(Other builds will be available shortly!)
Don't forget to thank Mr GRiM if you like the icons, their his icons and without him these icon packs wouldn't be available.. I just wrote the install/uninstall scripts to make the installation process easier.


Updates:
6th Aug 2009: Brand new Mr GRiM's Ultimate icon pack added.
27th July 2009: Mr GRiM's Black Glass icon pack added.
23rd July 2009: Added separate x86 7100 version & 7100 'AIM' problems now fixed.
19th July 2009: Added downloads for build 7100 and build 7600 ( .16384 & .16385 ).
17th July 2009: Icon Pack Installer updated to include icons for Floppy/Bluray drives.
Can the ultimate icon pack have a link for build 7100 32 bit version RC?

The black folder with the green writing may be the best thing ever created. That is freaking awesome! Nice job Grim.

Also, in case you didn't catch that, I may have been hinting that that is a set that should come into creation. :P

Thanks for all your hard work guys.

It would be nice if there was one created for all the colors - but if it has to be just one, I vote red

Grim - all those icons in the Ultimate pack - would you consider making a second pack using a replacement blue color, specifically RGB:158/180/255?

Thanks blackrose, I'm glad you liked them, I have to agree there is something about that green one that just stands out, I think I will probably do one with the green theme for you but not sure when or if the look will remain the same

Yes it would be nice to have one for all but unfortunately it's not that easy, I think I will have to start doing all my work on Photshop to make things a bit easier, that way I can have all the layers sved in one file and I just change certain aspects without having to recreate the whole icon again.

Anyway I think I'm improving with these icons and learning how to make them better and make them easier so you never know, you might have a full ranged colour set for the next ones.

Thanks mate, maybe I need to change the thread Title so people know that it's not just the Blue ones available, I'm glad you like them though and I will see what I can do about the colour change.

Mr Grim: Do you take requests? If so, could you please make an icon-pack that's slightly transparent and baby blue, so that it matches the rest of W7's default icons? Also, when it comes to icons with monitors, could you use this monitor icon? There's even an icon in that pack that has a little W7 wallpaper on it.

Thanks for the link Cam, I may do a baby blue Glass theme in the future and I will probably use that icon in it.
