Win 8 desktop icon change for NX

Phenom
Phenom

I'm testing a new workstation, and Windows 8, for use with NX9.  We use the NXCustom setup that Rob Cohon developed, so all the custom NX changes, and start up .bat files are on the server, and only the OOTB install is on the local machine.  I'm trying to get the desktop icons for the shortcuts to the .bat files, to use the NX.ico icon file, but they are refusing.  Is there something different I have to do on Wndows 8?  See attached.

 

Thanks,

 Dave

How about using the icon from %UGII_ROOT_DIR%\ugraf.exe?

 

If you use the above path with the environment variable, you should not need to change the icon for an upgrade, since the environment variable is used instead of the expanded path.

 

Another option is to extract the icon contained in ugraf.exe, since it should have all the sizes Windows needs.

You could use IcoFX v1.6 or Paint.NET with the icon plug-in to extract the icon with all its sizes.

%UGII_ROOT_DIR%\nx.ico

 

That worked, it must not like the network location.

I think UNC paths are not supported, but mapped drives surly are.

 

I would still try to reduce network load and use local resource as much as possible.

Agreed, since we are not using a mapped drive, the local icon is a better idea.
