Windows 7: File Extension Icon - Change Default Icon

Sorry, no luck.. Replacement only applies to MediaInfo (not on the video icon), then I could see shortly in the right-click context menu where the icon of MediaInfo has changed, but after choose MediaInfo to see the info data, it turns back to the original icon. The same thing in the registry was returned back as the beginning.

It doesn't look like the program is going to allow it without changing it back.

Hey Brink, I have found the solution. In the Registry [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mplayerc64.mkv\DefaultIcon] I replace mpciconlib.dll with the icon of mine where it was. It's simple, just changed from @=""C:\\Program Files\\MPC-HC\\mpciconlib.dll",20" change to @="G:\\MyIconLib\\mkv.ico,0" - then it's successful and works fine without any problems.

Thanks Brink, my problem is resolved now
