Unable to install WS icon in Win7
« on: March 09, 2014, 11:00:56 PM »
I'm moving a couple of my computers from XP to Win7 32

I've tried several icons, but the traditional WS icons will not display in Win7 (32).

Running WS6 in a fat32 partition, work fine.  One glitch, have not been able to find an icon that works on the desktop and taskbar..  Have changed from hi resolution to low resolutions -- still no effect on icon.

The icons that work in XP display in the file manager, but will not display on the desktop-- that is will not display for the WS6 shortcut.

I was able to change the command prompt shortcut icon to the old MSDOS icon.

In the WS6 & ws6 shortcut properties box I can get the icon to change, but the "apply" button is dimmed out.
