Hi,

I upgrade my PC to Windows10 32 bit, and try change out shortcut icon of 16bit programs on the Desktop.

I look for icon's in ...windows\system32\shell32.dll

But I meet with persistant refusal.

Whay Windows refused change icon a 16bit program's shortcut?

Somebody can explain this reaction, and give me a working solution?

With regards,

Serj

Hello Steve,

I am looking for a similar answer as Serj92,

On my previous PC Win 7 32 bits, I had a problem with icon changing on app that runs on 16 bits. 

In order for the app to run on my PC I had to create a shortcut from the original app, which is installed at the company server, and to be able to change the icon of that shortcut I had to use the following instruction: C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c H:\APP\APP.exe. Please see picture for better understanding

Now I have a Win10 32bits, where the above instruction doesn't work.

Could you please help me?

Thank you

Gloria
