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?

Thanks Allangoing been looking for something like this for a long time.

is your win 7 32 bit or 64 bit? I still have issues on win7 64 i think because it is trying to shove it in sytem32 and im pretty sure on 64 it needs to go into syswow64

I'm pretty sure in XP 32bit you can put the dll into any folder, but for 64bit, probably it's different.... I'm still digging why and how let it work, any suggestion?

I've been trying to use this but whenever I try to execute the reg.bat file, it says
"
C:\Users\FatBoyExtraordinaire\Documents\APK Icon>regasm.exe /codebase apkshellex
t.dll
Microsoft (R) .NET Framework Assembly Registration Utility 2.0.50727.42
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation 1998-2004. All rights reserved.

RegAsm : error RA0000 : An error occurred while writing the registration informa
tion to the registry. You must have administrative credentials to perform this t
ask. Contact your system administrator for assistance

C:\Users\FatBoyExtraordinaire\Documents\APK Icon>pause
Press any key to continue . . . "

The thing is, I am the administrator and am using that account. Any tips?

64bit OS user:
can you please try to use your local regasm.exe instead of the one inside the zip package?
In reg.bat, replace regasm.exe with "%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\regas m.exe"

Use the dll in the OLD zip package, NOT the x64 version. The old one compiled with "any CPU" option and should be compatible with both x86 and x64.

I still haven't gotten my 64bit os run, so please tell me the result, thanks!

Sorry it works now. Just read that a reboot fixes it. Maybe you should put that in the OP. Thanks for making this, makes finding some of these apk's so much easier on my laptop.

Question...
If I wanna move the dll to the /system/32 directory, would I have to put the reg.bat in there too? Or could I just move the dll & run the reg.bat from the desktop? I just like keeping my desktop as clutter free as possible

yes, you have to move reg.bat there as well,,but after register, you can delete everything but apkshellext.dll
I will put a "reboot" there :P
I'm glad to hear you like this! I'm trying to add more stuff on this, how about install to your phone from context menu?
