I can not get it to work on my xp I've tried rebooting,killing explorer, and extracting to different directories. Do I need to extract it to \system32?

Hi,
I create a x64 version, but since I don't have x64 OS, please have a try and feed back.
download here ->
http://apkshellext.googlecode.com/files/apkshellext.dll

use the old reg.bat to register, probably, you have to kill your explorer first, and run the bat using "run..." command

you don't have to extract it to system32, but you need to run the reg.bat first, and you should see something like "register successful" message. after it, you cannot move the dll file, since the path is recorded in registry.

sometimes the icon doesn't show since icon cache, please try see the properties of your apk file, if everything correct, you should see the icon in the properties window.

if still doesn't work, here is a piece of registry keys extract from my computer, please check if you have the same:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.apk]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.apk\DefaultIcon]
@="%1"
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.apk\shellex]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.apk\shellex\IconHandler]
@="{66391a18-f480-413b-9592-a10044de6cf4}"

still problem, reply again, describe what you did and I will try my best to help

Maybe I am wrong but i do not see anywhere saying this is for Droidexplorer.

From the explanation this is for the regular build in explorer for MS so for it not working in droid explorer i would say thats a droid explorer issue since that is not the normal ms one but a custom build application

I never said it was for Droidexplorer. Droidexplorer was my cause for the icons not working. So I uninstall it...now all my apk's have icons.

Didn't work for me either running XP. I looked through properties like others suggested but found nothing that would allow me to change this. Does it have to be changed where it says "open file with..." or is something else changing?

where did you put the dll? did you check the registry like what I said in previous post? is there any information shows up when you run the reg.bat?
