Due to some new DeviantArt policy it is no longer possible to submit executable files.

UPDATE Version: 0.7 R4
Released 2012-09-06.

It should now run on Windows 8. It should also display a useful error message if an icon can not be applied.

Download it here [link] if you are having problems or are running Windows 8.

UPDATE Version: 0.7 R3
Released 2012-03-30.

I've fixed a problem that made backups impossible to create if no shortcuts had ever been pinned to the start menu.

Is this the final release? Only time can tell.

UPDATE Version: 0.7 R2 BETA
Released 2011-09-20.

I've added three new packages! Two from ~deleket and one from ~aablab. Be sure to check them out. Also, please note that these packages are released under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License (see their respective license.txt file). Thus, I requested special permission to create these packages.

Otherwise, there are only some minor changes.

UPDATE Version: 0.7 BETA
Released 2011-06-26.

This release is looong over due; but now its here! I have made a lot of small updates, as well as some big once.

For the package creators I have included a way to auto assign icons to programs. I hope this will encourage more people to create packages :D

As for the rest, there is a new backup system that will ensure your shortcuts are always safe. It should be virtually impossible to destroy them now!

It is also possible to change icon of unpinned shortcuts! This is possible ONLY if you apply the package to a folder that contains the shortcuts you use then launching the program. This should not be a problem though since it's possible to apply a package to any folder on the hard-drive!

UPDATE Version: 0.5 R3 BETA
Released 2011-01-20.

Fixed an error in the Dark Token package concerning Skype.

In short. There is no need to update if you have not experienced any problems.

Introduction
A while ago I became interested in changing the icons on my Windows 7 Taskbar. Unfortunately I had to do it manually which required a lot of work. After much blood, sweat and tears I decided it was time for a change. It was time to create 7CONIFIER.

7CONIFIER is a tool is capable of changing all your taskbar and start menu icons in a single click (and key press)! All you need to do is select the package you would like to use and hit "Apply".

7CONIFIER comes pre-loaded with three packages (Eclipse 2, Token Light and Token Dark). If you like variety you can easily add more packages. Simply download a package and place it in the folder called "packages".

Features
● One click (and key press) to change your systems appearance.
● One click (and key press) to change it back.
● Comes pre-loaded with three packages.
● Supports future package releases.
● Built-in editor that allows you to edit or create you own packages.
● Works on both big and small (xp-style) icons.
● Backup system.

How to install
Simply unzip the file and place the folder called "7CONIFIER" in a good place. I do not like applications that change registry entries and spread files allover my hard drive thus 7CONIFIER won't touch the registry and it will keep to itself as much as it possibly can. To uninstall simply delete the folder -- remember to reapply your default package though.

Requirements
● Windows 7. Works on both 32 or 64 bit (thanks ~se7ensinner).
● .NET 3.5 (should be included in your Windows installation).
● Taskbar buttons need to be set to: "Always combine, hide lables". You can find this option by right-clicking the taskbar and pressing Properties. Screenshot: [link]

Preview info
● Visual style: Shine 2.0 [link] by *zainadeel (thanks ~dysgenics)
● Wallpaper: Name and author is unknown.
● Star orb: steelOrb for Windows 7 [link] by `ap-graphik

Permissions
I have been granted permission to redistribute Token [link] and Ecqlipse 2 [link] as part of 7CONIFIER by each respective author (~brsev and ~chrfb).

DD!
Woahw! Never thought I would get a DD! Never! I am honored :D

Enjoy! I hope you find it useful.

so, if you ever wanted to exchange icons for free and in one go.. then this is what you've been looking for.

To clarify, I ran it and applied Token Light icons. I also made a backup of my icons before doing so and even when I restore it doesn't fix it.

Figured it out. I had a theme that had a modified shell32.dll file I completely forgot about it when running your program and since yours utilizes that it screwed everything up.

If anyone else runs into this problem it's probably because you have a modified shell32.dll file.

I fixed it by doing a System Restore but if you have a back up of your shell32.dll file just overwrite the corrupt one.

Hi, I tried using this program and it worked on all the other icons but it changed the Windows Explorer icon to look like this: [link]

Hey, just trying to clarify

This will only work with a program that is actively pinned correct?
Meaning if I do not have program x pinned, but start it up, the icon from the package will not be applied to the program icon on the taskbar

I ask because the "Custom Folders" Option confuses me a bit and makes me think that one MIGHT be able to "change the icons of items not pinned"
Reply
:iconwronex:
wronex Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013
You are almost correct. You can change icons of items not pinned and have them retain the custom icon when launched, IF and only if, they are launched from the shortcut WITH the custom icon.

To clarify, if you create a shortcut for Notepad and place it in C:\MyDir and use C:\MyDir as a "Custom Folder", you can change the icon of your Notepad-shortcut. However, the custom icon will only show on the taskbar if use launch Notepad with that specific shortcut in C:\MyDir.

Beware though, will not work for some programs, as they change their icon at run-time, or launch other processes...

Hope this helps.

I just installed this, and it works perfectly... for the taskbar. Some reason, it doesn't do anything for my start menu, which just contains shortcuts to various folders and computer. I'd expect the windows explorer icon to be applied to the folders, but alas, it was not. Any idea why?

Hmm... have you pinned the folders to your start menu? Most people forget this.

You should use the built-in editor. Simply select a package and hit edit. The rest should be quite easy the figure out.

You'll need to add them to package's XML file using the built-in editor.

It looks like Token Dark is missing a ton of icons. There is only about 40 in yours and the one i downloaded has 150+

:iconwronex:
wronex Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2012
Yes, it is missing icons, but only because I can't guess which programs you have installed and to keep the download size down, and to save me some work. Since this is a customization tool you are supposed to do some of the work yourself -- to personalize your computer in the way you see fit.

I tried by every way explained to bring back my default icons but I keep getting the same message: HRESULT Exception: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED).

I also tried to download it again but I get the same thing everytime. Do you have an idea about what could be the problem?
