Due to some new DeviantArt policy it is no longer possible to submit executable files.

UPDATE Version: 0.7 R4
Released 2012-09-06.

It should now run on Windows 8. It should also display a useful error message if an icon can not be applied.

Download it here [link] if you are having problems or are running Windows 8.

UPDATE Version: 0.7 R3
Released 2012-03-30.

I've fixed a problem that made backups impossible to create if no shortcuts had ever been pinned to the start menu.

Is this the final release? Only time can tell.

UPDATE Version: 0.7 R2 BETA
Released 2011-09-20.

I've added three new packages! Two from ~deleket and one from ~aablab. Be sure to check them out. Also, please note that these packages are released under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License (see their respective license.txt file). Thus, I requested special permission to create these packages.

Otherwise, there are only some minor changes.

UPDATE Version: 0.7 BETA
Released 2011-06-26.

This release is looong over due; but now its here! I have made a lot of small updates, as well as some big once.

For the package creators I have included a way to auto assign icons to programs. I hope this will encourage more people to create packages :D

As for the rest, there is a new backup system that will ensure your shortcuts are always safe. It should be virtually impossible to destroy them now!

It is also possible to change icon of unpinned shortcuts! This is possible ONLY if you apply the package to a folder that contains the shortcuts you use then launching the program. This should not be a problem though since it's possible to apply a package to any folder on the hard-drive!

UPDATE Version: 0.5 R3 BETA
Released 2011-01-20.

Fixed an error in the Dark Token package concerning Skype.

In short. There is no need to update if you have not experienced any problems.

Introduction
A while ago I became interested in changing the icons on my Windows 7 Taskbar. Unfortunately I had to do it manually which required a lot of work. After much blood, sweat and tears I decided it was time for a change. It was time to create 7CONIFIER.

7CONIFIER is a tool is capable of changing all your taskbar and start menu icons in a single click (and key press)! All you need to do is select the package you would like to use and hit "Apply".

7CONIFIER comes pre-loaded with three packages (Eclipse 2, Token Light and Token Dark). If you like variety you can easily add more packages. Simply download a package and place it in the folder called "packages".

Features
● One click (and key press) to change your systems appearance.
● One click (and key press) to change it back.
● Comes pre-loaded with three packages.
● Supports future package releases.
● Built-in editor that allows you to edit or create you own packages.
● Works on both big and small (xp-style) icons.
● Backup system.

How to install
Simply unzip the file and place the folder called "7CONIFIER" in a good place. I do not like applications that change registry entries and spread files allover my hard drive thus 7CONIFIER won't touch the registry and it will keep to itself as much as it possibly can. To uninstall simply delete the folder -- remember to reapply your default package though.

Requirements
● Windows 7. Works on both 32 or 64 bit (thanks ~se7ensinner).
● .NET 3.5 (should be included in your Windows installation).
● Taskbar buttons need to be set to: "Always combine, hide lables". You can find this option by right-clicking the taskbar and pressing Properties. Screenshot: [link]

Preview info
● Visual style: Shine 2.0 [link] by *zainadeel (thanks ~dysgenics)
● Wallpaper: Name and author is unknown.
● Star orb: steelOrb for Windows 7 [link] by `ap-graphik

Permissions
I have been granted permission to redistribute Token [link] and Ecqlipse 2 [link] as part of 7CONIFIER by each respective author (~brsev and ~chrfb).

DD!
Woahw! Never thought I would get a DD! Never! I am honored :D

Enjoy! I hope you find it useful.

the suggester said: "7CONIFIER by ~wronex is a truly useful application for all people who run Win7 and like to customize it. It is easy to use, and you can feed it with other icons/iconpacks! A clear recommendation!"
so, if you ever wanted to exchange icons for free and in one go.. then this is what you've been looking for.

Hey wronex, i've been using 7conifiier for years (on my windows7 laptop) and all of a sudden i get an error "Unable to create backup. The specified path, filename, or both are too long" when i haven't changed anything! I moved the folder to C: so the path name is certainly less than 248 characters and i still get the same error. If i continue applying a theme without backup or try to restore a backup, the theme is partially applied and there are many icons missing.

This doesn't seem to work on Windows 8.1, none of the icons get themed. Esp the Explorer. Am i doing something wrong? Just noticed that it hasn't been updated in a long time. Has the developer abandoned further development on this?

Apply a backup and delete the files. Or unpin all your programs from the taskbar and repin. That should do the trick. If not, see the readme.

So whenever I add a new icon pack to the packages folder, I can't seem to find it in 7conifier. I've restarted the program and computer with no luck. I'm doing exactly what the .txt file says in the packages folder. All the icons are .ico files and the folder seems to be basically the same as the other default ones, but it still doesn't show up in the program to use. Any idea as to why?

:iconwronex:
wronex Featured By Owner May 16, 2014
Are the packages made specifically for 7CONIFIER? Because they also need to contain a control file, an XML file.

I love this, but it isn't working for me. I've ticked all the boxes before applying and it's still only applying to my start menu and my Explorer still looks the same.

Help would be much appreciated.

To clarify, I ran it and applied Token Light icons. I also made a backup of my icons before doing so and even when I restore it doesn't fix it.

Figured it out. I had a theme that had a modified shell32.dll file I completely forgot about it when running your program and since yours utilizes that it screwed everything up.

If anyone else runs into this problem it's probably because you have a modified shell32.dll file.

I fixed it by doing a System Restore but if you have a back up of your shell32.dll file just overwrite the corrupt one.
