How to Add Your Icons to Portable Version

I have modified the icons of the portable version of FC. At first, I couldn't make the icons appear when I moved the FC somewhere else but I figured out a way. The program on my main PC is saved to:

C:\FreeCommander\

I saved the icons I use to this folder:

C:\FreeCommander\Settings\MyIcons

When I added my own icons to FC, I ended up with a path like this to the icon file:

C:\FreeCommander\Settings\MyIcons\name.ico

I found you can change it to this and will make the icons portable:

Settings\MyIcons\name.ico

Many of you probably already know this but some may not.

That sounds interesting. Thanks. Are you referring to toolbar icons, or the icon for the FreeCommander application itself?

It is the toolbar icons. They won't work on the portable version unless you make the link to the icons "relative" as I describe. It won't matter of course if you never move the program to another location, but then it wouldn't be portable.
