 Post subject: VistaDriveIconChanger - Change your drive icons in explorer
New postPosted: Sat Jan 23, 2010 2:26 pm 

I posted earlier the same tool as Windows 7 version in Windows Forums, but now it's on Vista!
This little tool changes you drive icons to custom - make sure you have them at .ico, if you don't, you can convert them to .ico here:
ConvertICO.com
You can also add this to memory stick, this is portable!
Download: VistaDriveIconChanger

I couldn't get it to work this morning; something must have chaned with the latest seven one because the first didn't work with vista but the vista version does.

In Windows 7, you have already Registry entry [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Applications]
But in Vista you don't have, so I think that rsvr85 have made it earlier.
Am I right?

That makes sense. I was testing it on a version of Vista that resets blank every time you restart so it was completely plain.

Nope, Vista was in a brand new VM, it worked like a charm :?
