UPDATE: 16-02-2008 batch fixed
UPDATE: 14-02-2008

Description:
Copies a patched version of the interface
and overwrites the default icons in the in 7zip folder

Comments:
- 7Zip version 4.57
- For now it was not possible to create a Tango interface; only Gnome GUI is available)
- There are several types of icons for Tango: rar, zip, bz2, iso, gzip, 7z, tar, cab and "split" archives.. For Gnome just the default one.



In order for the batch file to run successfully 7-zip should be placed in the default Program Files path. If it doesn't work you need to alter the batch file.

You may need to rebuild the icon cache after that to see the changes.

I'm assuming this doesn't affect with the desktop icons, just the icons within the 7zip interface, no?
