All extensions keep taking one icon - the last one set for no matter what extension.

Setting one specific icon for a specific extension (e.g. flac) and then associating xmplay with some other extension (e.g. mp3) this one takes the icon that was last set (in this case flac icon).

I believe that you can use |FileTypesManager from nirsoft to do this.

You dont need to be a software developer to use these icons. Just edit the registry.

That link will guide you on what to do but BE CAREFULL when editing the registry. You should always back the registry up before you mess with it.

I've managed to get associate these icons with a few types of audio files on my Windows 7 machine, but it's been a confusing process. The tool Extman comes without documentation and there is none on the web, so I had to spend a couple of hours experimenting. I only seem able to associate one icon for all xmplay-able files.

Also the icons won't scale down to the smaller three you see in the screenshot above. It uses the biggest icon and tries to scrunch it down smaller and smaller, which doesn't look good.

In short, unless you are an experienced software developer, it will be difficult to utilize these icons. I LOVE xmplay, but hate the default icon. It's just ugly. I wish there were some new default icons that came with the player, similar to the ones above [but that I could get to actually work]. cheers.
