I've set up a dual boot system here, WIN 98 and WIN 2000, each on different
bootable partitions invisible to each other, and most applications and data
on ''D:\>'', visible to both.
In WIN 98 I set up specific icons to many of my more important folders. Did
this by setting the folders to ''system'' and inserting a ''desktop.ini''
file in the folder. The icons are kept in D:\icons, visible to both WIN 98
and WIN 2000, so they can both get at 'em. A typical ''desktop.ini'' file
of my make would read as follows:
InfoTip=Moved from C:\Windows\
In WIN 2000, this will, when hovered, show the InfoTip, but not the icon--I
get a default ''error'' icon, the bent corner page with the WINDOWS flag on
it. This is no good. I wanted to make the folders distinguishable at a
in WIN 2000, they're hard to distinguish from .txt files.
In WIN 98 obviously, that got me a custom icon for the folder shown
Now, from the WIN 2000 generated ''C:\Documents and Settings\Lee
Chestnut\Recent'' folder, I get the following ''desktop.ini'' file which
does, indeed, show a custom folder icon to WIN Explorer in WIN 2000.
Some differences are obvious, but I have no real clue why my ''desktop.ini''
files would work in WIN 98, but not in WIN 2000. I have installed
Irfanview, so I have a viewer installed that'll handle .ico files, so that
shouldn't be it. But, unless perhaps WIN 2000 will ONLY handle special
icons from a .dll file or some such, then I'm clueless as to what I'm doing
wrong. Or, does that ''ConfirmFileOp=0'' mean something I don't understand?
