Windows 7 and "Change Icon" in right-click context menus

Hi everyone!


I just purchased IconPackager 5 and I have a strange problem with it. I just can't figure out how to change a particular folder's icon like IconPackager is suppose to do. (My OS is Windows 7 32 Bit french)

I've ticked the box to activate the right-click option in the context menus like in the image bellow:

 

 

Then I click on "Apply changes" and close IconPackager. After that, I do a right click on a folder to change it's icon but as you can see on the picture bellow, the option "Change Icon" doesn't appear in context menu:

 

 

And to top it all, when I re-open IconPackager, the "Change Icon" option box that I ticked is now unselected.

Can someone please help me on this one?!

Thanks in advance.

I'm having the same prob!  And now when I click 'properties' then 'icon' then 'change icon' the activation window pops up and it won't activate.  Can't believe I paid for this:(

BTW I DO have Impulse installed and it verifies that IP5 is installed correctly...

Ugh!  IP5 won't let me change icon size either.  And when I want to view in IconDeveloper the same activation box pops up

I'm having the same problem as the OP Redflint. I've installed IconPackager 5 via "Stardock Central", but my right click context menu's remains unchanged. Specifically, I'm after the options "Show 'Change Icon' option in right-click context menus". Currently running Windows 7 Home x64.

 

Not too sure what to do.

The "Change Icon" option does not work with folder options due to OS restrictions.  You should be able to change it through Right-Click | properties | Customize  or through IconPackager.

Finally got to check out this program further, unfortunately I got a little excited, as it doesn't have the feature I was after... Here's what I'm hoping can be added to future releases.

I'm working on a objectdock for bookmarks, and most bookmark images are tiny and need replacing, so it'd be great to have a one stop shop to manage bookmark icons with.
