Hello xTL,

Could you place the .ico in a ZIP file and upload it here? I'll do some testing with it to see how it works with me to help eliminate that as a possibility.

xTL,

The icon that you loaded is actually a 128x128 pixel icon instead. If you do not have a 256x256 icon for it, then post back the PNG file for it, and I'll be happy to convert it to a 256x256 icon.

Yep, that one is 256x256 and works just fine with it for me.

If OPION ONE still does not work for you, then give OPTION TWO a try instead to see if it may work.

These settings are correct right ? i shouldn't have to change anything ?


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Applications\Explorer.exe\Drives\C\DefaultIcon

That is the correct entries.

If it's still not working, then try Option Two since it is at the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE registry location instead of HKEY_CURRENT_USER (Option One).
