ShortCut shows only default Windows icon
Posted 27 May 2002 - 15:54
If I right click the sortcut an select properties -> change icon I can see, that the correct path and iconfile is written to the shortcut. I have then to select this path and click OK and the correct icon is displayed.
What can cause this behaviour ? Why is the icon only displayed when clicking the shortcut properties ?
Thank You for Your help

unfortunately I cannot help, but I can empathize - I have just discovered exactly the same problem in my Dev 7 package. Have you discovered a cause yet? I'll keep looking...

So.. if i name the path D:\SOMEDIR\SOMENESTEDDIR\
instead of the equivalent in lowercase this will work? Or are you talking about the path variables?
Thx in advance!

You can also try going to the icon table and dbl clking the Binary data column (newly created cell) and adding (in fact reading) the exe/ico to the binary table and then give a name for the icon. In the Shortcut table use this new icon for your shortcut.
