I have done everything I can think of to change the control panel icons and nothing has worked.
1. Package builder (lot of time wasted) didn't update any of the default icons
2. Rebuilding icon cache and removing it entirely.
3. Changing permissions by adding my login and also setting administrator to Full control -> Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\<<Various identifiers>>\DefaultIcon
This is NOT an isolated event. I have had this issue with IconPackager on every version with Windows 7 and Windows 10.
Unless there is something I am missing - I might as well never buy a icon package again since I cannot use all of them.
