iPack Builder v2.2: Tool for icon customization by Mr-Blade iPack Builder v2.2: Tool for icon customization by Mr-Blade

Bullet; Black If you  have made iPack(s) with any older version (current version is 2.2) , instead of remaking your iPack with new iPack builder, just upgrade it.



Version 2.2
Final compilation date: 09/12/2015
----------
[-]Resolved Windows 10 bug (settings options not accessible)
[-]Fixed permission restore bug
[+]More elements theming support in the installer (Read documentation for theming guide)
[-]Reduced installer size

Bullet; Black Complete changelog



What it is?


With this tool you can make icon packs installers in exe format.
The installer will work perfectly on Windows 7,8,8.1 both x86 and x64.

The idea was simple enough that we wanted to patch windows dll's exe and other things without messing around.

iPacks V/S 7tsp:


-More reliable scripting
-Faster method.
-Advance installer
-You don't need any other software to install the pack.
-Simple interface, just click on buttons and install the pack.
-Packs built with iPack Builder and for 7tsp are nearly of same size.
-7tsp cannot patch in Program files folders (only wmplayer I guess) but with iPacks you can patch in program files folder also
-iPacks are smart enough to check if x64 windows, if found x64 windows then it will patch both x86 and x64 dll files.
-You don't need to reboot every time. Installer is smart enough to detect if system requires a reboot.


A big thanks to LamiaDC :iconlamiadc:
for helping me out in testing the iPack Builder ;)

Hi, im trying to extract and replace some icons from neiio's "Vertex IconPack", i've looked in my project folder created by IPack builder, and the .res files are not there. Is what i'm trying to do even possible? Thanks in advance.

Yes you can extract .res files from an iPack & here's how to do it:

Version 2.1.1 and above can be used to extract iPack resources. Just select modify option and then select Interface tab and look at the path of any image. see this :s30.postimg.org/vxwn4tc4h/snap…

My path for logo image is C:\Users\Harsimran\AppData\Local\Temp\757057675506867585\Setup files-iPack\logo.png so my .res files will be found in Temp folder under 757057675506867585 folder. Similarly you can check yours. ( open temp folder with %temp% )

Do not close iPack Builder untill you have copied your required files or else they will be deleted just after closing iPack Builder

Hey mate just wondering if you are working on a new version for Insider Preview rs1.  It seems it doesn't work anymore.  It won't replace the files.  It's a language issue I gather.  Thanks for the awesome app.  I hope you continue support for it.  

Cheers,
Jamie

shell32.dll still cannot be patched ? ty

Mr-Blade Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Shell32.dll is skipped because it is digitally signed, if that signature is modified then the windows will fail to boot. If you know any fix for this then you can share it with me :)

Hi, Is it possible for me to make a iPack for 3rd party apps like Photoshop,Chrome, 3ds max, Maya, etc..? Sorry for my noobish question.. If yes could you please tell me how to do it? I've followed your tutorial but it doesn't work in my matter.. I have made a photoshop.exe.res file only with photoshop icon from its .exe file. then put it inside Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC2015\ but after the installation, nothing has been changed. I hope to see your reply sooner and hope for your guidance if possible. Thanks~ :)

Don't create folders inside main folder. Just a single folder is supported. If you want to patch Photoshop icon then create a folder Adobe & place the photoshop.exe.res in that folder, now drop the folder in the iPack builder.

I think you still need to look into this for win10 x64 (build 10240), still getting permission errors after patching. Can not access, themes, advance sounds, desktop icon, mouse pointer settings and a few other things.

thank you for letting me know. Here's what I wanna ask:
1. Which iPack did you use? Are you sure it was built/upgraded with version 2.2?
2.There will be a log file in C:\Program Files\iPack Name\iPack Name.log ( or program files(x86) if 64 bit windows) .Please send me that
3.Before patching with iPack was your system performing well?

1) Token Etched by neiio.deviantart.com/
I have also updated older iPacks I have that where made with v2.1
2) Log sent in Notes
3) Yes, system working fine b4 patching. I made my own image b4 tweaking any system files. I just got back to that if I have problems after a patch of dlls and so forth.

Side: Note, If i reboot I then do not get permission errors until explorer crashes or some times after a while of running the system. Then I have to reboot again and it working for a while once more. Not fully sure what is going own. As the permission look right.

Funny thing is I also installed Token Etched on my windows 10 (build 10240). I don't seem to have any problem. I have no idea how to fix and the log file looks all good. CURSE YOU!

Yea, I know I don't get it as also if you see the screen shot its not the modded dlls, its a registry entry for the themes and then others its the rundll32.exe for the rest. It has to be in their but not sure what. I will try to look into it more this weekend.

Installer doesn't show in list and doesn't patch explorer.exe and shell32.dll. When I add only explorer.exe.res and shell32.dll.res files in builder, compile project, start installer, after click Next, the program says "No .res file present to patch, installer will exit". Any solution?

It will not patch explorer & shell32 if the windows is 8 or above. To patch explorer & shell32, the iPack you made must run on windows 7 only.

Can you update your app to work with windows 10 build 10240? As after running the installer for custom icons, it messes up the premisions for Administrators, Trusted Installer, System , All Applications packages & creator owner".
Not sure exactly what it does. But you lose access and will get errors if you try to load personification. Themes, icons or anything else from the settings window.

I have to run the CMD to take ownership back of the hole windows folder or run restore.
