i would like to know if its possible to reshack that by a script, so

that i can include that in my custom shell32 file .

do you know a way?

I don't use reshacker script method but individual command lines. This could change but when I started coding this, it was just out of a need to see if this could work. I was waiting for Dels to come back.

So, if you check the box at the bottom of IconSwap, the temp files are saved and you can see the created command lines in batch1.bat and batch2.bat (in the temp directory under NewIcons).

BTW, if you don't like the icons in NewIcons, just create your own directory and fill it with any icons you like.

The trick is the iconset.txt file and where they all go. If I get bored with a set, I just load in another set.

Who's taking the lead in this project? Please PM me

I send you a quick note soon. Thanks.

Too bad. Could you post batch1 and batch2 from the temp directory?

I am going to move this project very soon to a new branch of XPize.

I tried Icon Swapper on my wifes computer. Everything seems to work except for notepad.exe.

A long time ago, I replaced notepad with Winpad32 (or something like that) and renamed it notepad. I guess that the original notepad icon is not 104-

%WinDir%\notepad.exe, 104, 74.ico ;notepad

%SysDir%\notepad.exe, 104, 74.ico ;notepad

Probably something like 100 (2 minutes with reshacker would find this out)

The other difference is the Tray Volume Icon is only 16 colors. I hacked my explorer.exe to see these in 256 colors. Really easy fix and there is a few apps online that can automate this.

I don't thing reshacker likes spaces. A piece from your batch1.bat-

...ResHacker.exe -modify C:\Documents and Settings...

I think I tried this once with quotes around the file locations and it still didn't like it.

Like ...reshacker.exe -modify "C:\some directory with a space or two in it\shell32.dll" ...

For now, just move IconSwap to c:\temp and try again.

Also you will need to turn off any anti-virus protection you have.

BTW, thanks for guinea pigging your operating system for the cause.

I'll try the quotes idea again this weekend and if it does work, i'll code it in.

Hey Damian, glad it worked.

I am going to get some permissions and post the entire (what I have now) for download. I will probably start this on

MSFN Forums > Member Contributed Projects > XPize > IconSwap

or something similar.

Got your PM. It sounds cool. I know a lot of people want this theme. If you find anything like that and modify, post it here so that others can benefit too. Yes I want. Post please.
