    rebuilt icon cache bat


    Listen mate, I've been a professional coder since 1977, so I don't use macroshit shagware other than absolutely unavoidably indispensable. So, having had to, this irritation was far beyond singularly significant. Really thank you, I was on the verge of writing the little script and then this popped up, which saved me the trouble and frustration of any further ms bs. I cannot tell why and I'm not interested at all to know, but the icons righted immediately without having to restart and without there being a db file in the directory. Maybe your little image-thing of ET is more significant than you think.

    AMENDMENT: The directory which I'm referring to, is the one to which another solution referred, which is user\appdata\local\iconcache.db - I haven't read through this whole tread, obviously, but I've read your .bat file and it's the same directory. Checked again, refreshed the directory again, no iconcache.db file. There you go.

    Hello Timothy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    The iconcache.db files are hidden by default. Unless you have set to show hidden files (faded), you wouldn't normally see them.

    Yes, I know about those, I can see all hidden files and folders on the system drive. The reason I'm actually back here, is to amend further that the specific problematic box that has win7 on it (the software application and related hardware control system which the box is used for, doesn't work on any other version and is now being re-coded for Linux), has been shut down or restarted several times since I've your magic little script on there; and every time the same problem with the black icons; and every time the magic righting of the icons; and every time null iconcache.db file for the icons. I'm actually looking into a hacking sort of problem here, with the restarting process going on constantly in due course. Why the icon issue was actually bothering me, to be honest, is that I'm autistic and I think in pictures and having to read the icon's labels all of the time (about thirty on the desktop by now, for some reason "moving around" after a shutdown or restart) and then "translate" them to their pictures, took up a lot of time and already thin patience. The first solution was to delete the file right before shutting down, which then rebuilt and all was well, until that stopped working, eventually; that's why I know where the file is, the directory has a link on the desktop since I've started working on the problem. That became far beyond irritating, already having to bother with the ms bs non-operating system hacking paradise. I became slightly suspicious about the "disappearance" of the file though, all things considered; and as a first step, I've used Search Everything to see where it might have been "misplaced" or temporarily saved or whatever, with ms, one never knows; null iconcache.db file on the disk. The file is there right after a start or restart, but apparently doesn't get recreated after applying your magic little script. The significance of your ET-image is still unaccounted for, unfortunately. There you go, again; mate; do you not. By the way, since I've now gain confidence in you (apart from liking your ET-image very much and the autistic mind being a singular thing when it comes to strangers), would your rules allow met to ask specifically you about something other than this issue? I might encounter a few other problems and it would be nice to know that I can get help from somebody specific.

    Of course you ask anything you like, but it would be best to create a new thread in the forum for any unrelated questions.
