    If you know of a better way, can you please tell me? The only reason I'm doing this is because I though it said I had to.

    All that I'm trying to do is change the icon of my associated file type.

    I don't think you need to do anything else - a restart, a logout or killing explorer should make the new icon show up if I understand correctly.
    The entire shell is built with COM, Microsoft's pain-in-the-ass was-to-be universal language that does more harm than good.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    I just don't get it... I did the icon just the way the msdn documentation had it, and it worked at first, but now it just shows the little white page with a small version of my program's icon on the front. I guess I could live with that, but it's not exactly what I wanted.

    I did exactly as MSDN'S example.

    (Wow, I reply to a lot of my posts, don't I?)
    Anyway, I finally figured out what was wrong. I was just making one of the keys in the wrong spot, throwing the whole thing off. I think one of the moderators should close this thread before I ask another question...
    Again, thank you to Codeplug and Elysia, the only ones who answered.
