Chief X8 64-Bit Icon For Windows

Recommended Posts

I always have trouble seeing the little "X8" in the corner of the icon to determine which one is the 32-bit and 64-bit version, so I created this icon to make it easier. I thought I would share in case anyone else is interested in using it. I uploaded a .jpg preview so you can see what it looks like before downloading.

The problem is that it dosent stick with the updates, you get the old one and have to change it again.

That takes all of about five seconds though. Besides, I find that I have to reset my shortcuts every update anyway.

Agreed Perry, that is a shortcoming. I ended saving the .ico file in the Chief main folder so it's easier to find when I need to do a program update and reset the icon.

Here it is along with a couple others....

 

A quick grayscale version...

Or the purple version you mentioned with inverted colors...

Or a different "button" version...

Button.ico

And for those of you who don't know how to change the icon...

 

1.  Download the .ico file.

2.  Right click on the X9 desktop shortcut and then click on Properties.

3.  Click Change Icon

4.  Click Browse and locate the previously downloaded .ico file

5.  Select the desired icon and then click Okay

6.  Click Okay again

7.  If you get the Access Denied popup just click Continue.

Here is my X9 version of the Icon that I provided for the Beta testers.  This should load the same as Michael's icons and if you want to save the hassle of having to reassign with each update, I have found that by changing the name of the shortcut chief is unable to locate and delete it but still creates a new icon which you have the option to easily delete.
