I don't see anything wrong.

The only difference I see is the value for "4" is lower cased.

OK, just designed a FolderOpen icon, put it into the registry. Rebooted, and it works!! But it's using one I made about an hour before, not my final revision. I doublechecked the folder path and registry key.

Odd. You might see if rebuilding the icon cache may help.
