File types have generic icon after XPizing XP x64

2 posts in this topic

Hi all

I applied XPize to the source files on my HD, then burned them to DVD and installed on PC, however htm and html files have a generic / unknown icon as if Windows does not know which progeam is associated with these files, I corrected the association but it didn't have any effect. Can anyone tell me what option to NOT select in XPize 5R6 to not have this problem?

Thank you for reading

I've looked into this and cannot identify the cause. Windows handles HTML files specially anyway (e.g. if you have Microsoft Word installed, if a *.html file contains certain <meta> elements then the file will have the Word HTML icon instead of the standard HTML file icon).

For this, and other reasons, I strongly suggest running xpize after you've installed Windows, rather than patching a CD image. If I ever do release a new version, I'll remove the I386/CD-image patching feature because it doesn't work as-intended.
