    Exclamation WinXP Icon Change problem


    Hi All,

    I am a new member of this forum. I am trying to find a way out in Windows XP to Provide my own Icons to removable drives dynamically. When I put the entry under

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\Driveicons

    I am seeing color icons after sending the message to the OS saying there is a change in icon using the function SCH_UPDATEIMAGE which is an exported call in shell32.dll in Windows 98,Windows ME and Windows 2000.
    This call has been messed up in Xp and have no way to update the OS, I am trying to find a workaround for this till the Microsoft releases an version with this bug fixed. Can anyone help me on this.

    Thanks for your help.

    With Luv,
    Raja.

    Have you tried SHChangeNotify instead?
