    Hi there.
    This week I discovered QTTabBar, and I am very impressed with it's quality and features.
    I wish I knew of it before…

    At the moment I am experiencing some issues regarding icons though:

    After installing QTTabBar:

    - When using NirSoft's FileTypesMan tool, trying to change file icons, FileTypesMan completely freezes when simply clicking [browse…] (for an icon)

    - Dropbox files and folders on my PC used to get overlay icons that e.g. indicate if a file or folder is synced to DropBox.
    Not anymore. Only the default icons will show and won't dynamically change anymore.

    W10 21H2, QT 2048 beta 2

    It looks like QTTabBar keeps some lock on icons that makes it impossible for other apps to do something with them?
    Could somebody verify this?
    I'm on the stable 1043 version and unfortunately don't use Dropbox so can't confirm that. I can confirm that on my version overlay icons for One Drive and Google Drive work just fine.

    Can confirm this doesn't occur here.. with v1043

    Note- you would be changing the icon for a file type, not for a file...

    However you are using QT 2048 beta 2 - do you see these problems with v1043?

    Thanks guys for replying and trying this.

    FileTypesMan changes icons for file types, Dropbox does it for files. (well, I believe those are icon overlays)
    Both don't work anymore.
    I will try this again with v1043 later tomorrow and then report back.

    - - - Updated - - -

    So I did some more testing.
    Uninstalled 2048:
    NirSoft FileTypesMan worked fine again.
    But the Dropbox icon overlays didn't show up. Only after re-installing the desktop app, re-linking to the correct folder (needed to do that a couple of times, their app seems a bit buggy), and editing the registry for overlay icons it's now working again.
    Installed QT 1043:
    NirSoft FileTypesMan hangs again after clicking [Browse] for icon.
    Need to force it to shutdown.
    So I've now installed 2048 beta again.
    Dropbox icon overlays still working, NirSoft FileTypesMan is not.

    NirSoft FileTypesMan - no issues here as I said, so no ideas on that. Sorry, don't use Dropbox syncing, so can't comment.

    Only thought- some setting in Qttabbar that's different? And FWI I'm using an admin acct. Sorry can't be more help.

    I don't think so, I tested NirSoft FileTypesMan immediately after doing a clean install of 1043 without making any adjustments to it and it immediately failed to work well.

    I can probably circumvent this being a big problem by temporarily disabling any QT running processes when I want to use NirSoft FileTypesMan to make some system tweaks, and when I am done with that restart QT again.

    Anyway, thanks for listening and for the suggestions, it motivated me to put some effort in fixing the Dropbox issue and I learned something new ;-)

    Just to check - when you launch Filetypesman, do you get a UAC prompt?

    Yes.
    Both when I double-click the exe, and also when I right-click and choose 'run as administrator'.
    And in both cases it completely freezes at clicking [browse] for icon.
    As soon as I uninstall QT it works fine.

    Strange. It seems to be working ok for me too.

    Try creating a new user account for test purposes. Log in as that user, then try the same thing.

    Standard diagnostic check...

    Thank you for trying this too!
    So there must another factor on my PC why I am encountering this.
    It's a newly build computer with a clean install of Windows 10 21H2, then some personal tweaks and my most essential software installed.

    I don't think I will be putting in more time trying to see if I can find out what causes this exactly.

    I raised this because I had three different icon related issues after installing QT which made me suspect there was an larger issue concerning QT and icons.
    But 1 proved to be a dumb user error on my side, 2 was solved after reinstalling Dropbox and doing some registry tweaks, and this 3rd one is minor since I'll only use NirSoft FileTypesMan once or twice just after installing a new PC. I'll just have to remember to first do that before installing QT. (or temporarily uninstall it)

    So it's aul good man ;-)
