Win-7-Pro64bit 7-H-Prem-64bit

Thanks Archie,
I made the icons 66x66 but CorelDraw's ico files are not transparent for the round corners but did import the png's to gimp and it's ico options do make them transparent
Still thinking of a start button
What are the file locations for 125dpi on 64bit :/

125 dpi start button images are in C:\Windows\explorer.exe. The image resources are Bitmap 6802, 6806 and 6810.

Windows 8.1 64 bit

I follow this tutorial, but when I get to the appropriate step, I find no "Replace Resource" option on the right-click menu (I find "Replace Icon" instead). I tried using "Replace Icon", but it only allows the loading of one icon file at a time, and the resource I am trying to change has many icons within it.

Do I need an older version of Resource Hacker? Are there different steps for the latest version of Resource Hacker?

Thanks for any help.
