Is there a freeware program that would automatically create dll files & allow you to add icons to them?




I can make icon resource files with various sized icons included but I don't know how to create a dll to put them in.


Any help would be appreciated. :)

Why do you need to put them in a .dll? Usually the reason one would do that would be to package the icons with some code. But you obviously don't have code.

I have lots of icons.
putting them in a dll would save me from adding them to system32 one by one & having to search for them among all the files in system32.
Of which, there are a lot.
My intentions are not malicious.
I just want to make a dll file & stick it in system32 so if I WANT TO CHANGE AN ICON i CAN EASILY FIND IT & choose it.
I'm not a bad person.

Then again, The Road to Hell is paved with good intentions.

Why not just zip up .icos then?

The way you would do this would be to create a .DLL with your favorite compiler and embed the icons as resources. (That's all you're seeing if you open up a DLL with icons inside in something like ResHack)

Hello,


I tried a zippped folder & nothing.


I made a folder & pasted in a bunch of icons.
It worked.
I have no need to create a DLL file.


This is so simple it boggles my mind I didn't think of it before.
