    Using Erel's file association example i've managed to associate the ini files with my app....
    I'm only lacking the Icon association of the files...
    I have an .ico file wich I want to associate to the files, but I cant get it to work..
    Any help will be apreciated.

    Also I've tried this myself and I also couldn't get it to work with ico files,
    but it did work with the exe file

    similar to the lnk files :
    34#"\Path\To\Exe.exe?\path\to\icon.exe, -1"
    where -1 is the place of the icon...
    To check the numbers i used Rviewer
    If you want to use the same icon for your app and the ini files you
    can just point it to the exe file with the -1
    otherwise you might want to try including the ini.ico into the exe and
    search for the location using Rviewer...

    Hope it helps
    btw. i've attached a screenshot from my phone
    as you can see the ico is linked from B4PPC

    I downloaded it and instaled it but i don't understand it...
    I browse for the exe, and it does show me the icon contained, but if I hit next, I get some diferent values, and NO indication of their meaning.
    ie, basic4ppc icon is referenced in the regestry as 32512, but when I use the rviewer in it, I get all sort of in beetwen values...
    Must I try them all?


    I finaly got it to work...
    I went to the developers website, and found there an iconslib.dll file wich contained the icon I need, and got it working...
    It was like shooting an ant with a cannon, but at least the ant is dead, and i've learned something as well..

    Good to hear, and I'm glad the ant is dead
