Being a coder/programmer I often need to view the icons inside of a dll or an icl file.  I have tried all sorts of icon viewers and there are a lot of them, but none of them did everything that I wanted, or else I found them klunky in one way or another.  So, in the end I built my own which works exactly the way I want it to.

What I wanted most of all was to complement my particular workflow:

* Quickly open a library (either by drag-n-drop or commandline)
* Quickly fetch an icon's position
* Quickly extract an icon if I want it

* Designed to be Quick and Easy
* View icons at 16x16 or 32x32
* Easily and quickly switch between libraries
* Common Libs menu:  Keep a library of often used icon libraries
* History List: Keep history of viewed libraries
* Open the library in your favourite icon library editor
* Open icon libraries in Iconus via commandline, drag-n-drop, file-browse
* Get detailed information on each icon in the library
* Easily extract any icon in the library
* Easily fetch the icon's ID

Planned Features

* Option to associate file types
* Update the help file with commandline info  (I forgot)

To install Iconus, simply extract the contents of the zip file to any folder.

Using the Application
Designed for the sake of the ease-of-use in fetching an icon's index from .exe, .dll, .icl, .ico files.
You can open files via drag-n-drop, commandline, or file-browse.

How does a user uninstall the Application?  Just delete the files.

Known Issues
The History List can be a little quirky; it still needs a little work to tune up, but it works for the most part.

is there a download link?

My request is to use the NANY template, available in the combobox at the top of the message editor, so all entries have the same structure. Now it looks just like any regular forum-message :(

Ath - I did say I was going to update my post with a NANY template as soon as I got things together.

Looking good  :up:
