    DL and tried it on my Win 7 64-bit machine.

    Kept getting LOTS of boxes telling me “no icons found” and then a hang-up.

    Immediately deleted it.

    Try again, Mr. B.

      Are you running a standard, validated copy of windows? I’ve personally tested this on 64 and 32 bit without issue.

    Tried using AdSevenIconChanger to change a .bat file icon *on the taskbar* in Win 7 32 bit, but couldn’t find the present icon (the one to change) in any of the places your program listed. I uploaded an image of it.
