  1. I can confirm that the MDI bug is gone, but only for non-maximized child windows. As you know, every MAXIMIZED document window kinda merge its titlebar with the application's main menu bar, thus the document icon ends up next to "File.../ Edit / etc." Well, the problem is there now. The icon's background is just a dark square.

    On a side note, I've been inspecting the random bug I mentioned earlier regarding taskbar buttons and found that the problem is actually related to those titlebars showing system icons (folders, My Computer, etc., not appz). Their alpha channels don't look completely right. Besides, some icons in the system tray (for example, Windows Update)need to be clicked on for their alpha channels to show up.

    Thanks for all your hard work, WildBill.

  2. Would you mind posting screenshots?

    Here they are:


    1) Places bar showing 8-bit icons only.

    2) Corrupted child window icon in an MDI app (Photoshop in this case)

    3) Folder icons looking weird in taskbar. So far this is the only icon that shows up wrong the whole time, but sometimes icons in taskbar lose their alpha channels for a less than a second when you click them.

  3. I want it too; I have Vista Icon Pack, but I don't want packs, it will change everything, but I want only icons (I will reinstall Windows, and on "new" Windows I don't want packs).

    So one question: how to change system icons like folder icon, control panel icon, etc.. I know how to change My computer, My documents, Trash can and ... I don't know ... maybe Places in Internet? ... argh ... I just know how to change icons on desktop, but I don't know how to change icons like control panel or ... for example, change icon of all *.gif files ...

    Do you understand? :)

    Go get some app like Microangelo On Display or IconPackager. They are not free, though.

    A free alternative:


  4. I know this topic is old, but I need help ...

    When I install W2K RP and reboot computer, there are only "grey", "non-nice" ( :D ) icons in system tray and in "My Computer" there are icons with black background. And Explorer XP Icons? There are default, "non-nice" ( :D ) icons from W2K.

    Do you understand me?

    Thanks for answer.

    Hi. You may need to rebuild you icon cache for some changes to take effect (and I guess you already know how to do that, since you're using this software).

    About "non-nice" icons: RP doesn't change any icon. You must do it manually or install some customization pack like Vistapack 2K.

  5. Well, back on topic. I noticed you used large icons in the startmenu. Why? Did you do this on purpose? These icons should be 24px images inside a 32px grid, not actual 32px images. Take a close look at win2k's original shell32.dll and you'll see those icons numbered from 20 to 28 are a tad smaller than the rest. Right now they look too close to each other because images are larger than they should be.

  6. RPL2K is necessary because it provides 32-bit icons to Windows 2000. System would look really bad with new icons and without RPL2K.

    I knew that. I was beta-testing RP when it came out in February 2007.

    @ dave.net, if you dont like the way rpl2k works, ask tihiy to continue development man... :D

    Actually I did several times. Don't get me wrong, Damian, your pack is really GREAT. It's just (in my opinion) RP is a little buggy to be the "heart" of a customization pack. You should call out for programmers to develop a replacement. i'd do it myself if I could but i'm no progammer :(.

    This is constructive criticism, man. I'm just triyng to help.
