Refresh icons

Recommended Posts


By google translator

Hi. sorry my English.

When I attach a file type to my program or icon of the associated file does not change. I would like to understand how the setup program associates files and updates all the files at the same time without restarting explorer.exe.

With a simple google search  "assoc autoit site:www.autoitscript.com"
here is one hit

To refresh for changes without restarting explorer.exe you can use:

_WinAPI_PostMessage($HWND_BROADCAST, $WM_COMMAND, 41504, Null)



whichever works for you
