In order to replace the mostly horrible icons on Windows's "Desktop Screen", means make them look
as icons in Modern UI style, i.e. flat tiles instead of icons, I have created tool "ResourceDLLGenerator"
which allows you to generate from an icon (tile) set you provide a so-called resource DLL.

If you will it's somehow the counterpart to OblyTile, which is applicable for the Windows 8 "Start Screen" only.

What is it?
----------------

What is needed?
------------------------

1. Resource Hacker (included)
2. Microsoft Resource Compiler (included)

How to use?

Download the ZIP and move extracted folder "ResourceDLLGenerator" to HDD in any location of your wish.

Put the icon (tile) set(s) of your choice in subfolder ICO, each icon (tile) set as another subfolder, example

...
\ICO\iconset-n


Run RC-RES-DLL-Generator.exe

If all went well, the resource DLLs created are located in subfolder DLL.

You may move these DLLs into C:\Windows\System32 folder
