Faenza ICO files for Windows by EvanPurkhiser Faenza ICO files for Windows by EvanPurkhiser
Hey guys,

This is a fork of the Amazing Faenza Icon set by ~tiheum.

This set only includes unique icons. In the original Faenza icon set for Gnome there were many duplicate icons with different names (For the UNIX guys reading, they were symlinks). In this set, each icon will only exist once. There are about 1000 icons.

Most of the ICO files include frames for the following resolutions: 96, 22, 24, 32, 48, 64, 96, 128, 256. Although not every icon may have every size, since some of the icons were original designed as panel or status bar icons.

I will release a Windows 8 x64 DLL replacement package using these icons soon!

Again, all credit goes to ~tiheum for his work on this amazing icon set!

Just as the original work was, this is released under the GNU/GPL licence. You can find the script I used to convert the icons on GitHub.

Let me know what you guys think!


For everyone waiting on a Windows 8 installer. You can download a BETA installer here. I offer NO warranty with this installer. It will backup your original DLL files and really shouldn't break anything. But NO uninstaller is provided right now. If you want to revert to your previous DLL files you'll have to go into your System32 and SySWoW64 (for 64 bit) and replace the .dll files with the .dll.bak files.

The files that are replaced are imageres.dll shell32.dll fontext.dll DDORes.dll.

The zip also includes the ability to change some other icons for programs such as VLC, 7zip, word, excel, and Photoshop. You can apply these changes using the included registry scripts. Again, there is no uninstaller. To revert these changes you'll have to reset the file associations for each program (The easiest way would probably be by re-installing the program).

There's also a "unknown-mimetypes.reg" file included for file types that normally don't have programs associated with them (.hpp, .cpp, .css, .html, . py, .sql, .php, etc...) I would really only suggest using this if you really, REALLY, know what your doing

I'll try and put the finishing touches on this installer and include a uninstaller sometime in the future. But as of right now, it has no guarantees.

I'm having issues applying these in Windows 7 64-Bit. the fourth and fifth files keep saying that access is denied even when I have followed the instructions and closing any unnecessary processes that may be preventing it. Is there a way around this and which files is it having issues editing?

Sorry I never tested this on Windows 7. you can try removing the fourth and fifth files from the list of files it modifies in the batch file.

Does installer work with Win7?
EvanPurkhiser Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2013
*Maybe*. I really can't say for sure. It actually adds the icons into your current DLL so it's not technically windows 8 specific. But there might be some icons that it changes that are Windows 8 specific, so it might just silently fail. You can try. If it doesn't work you can just revert to the .bak files. Just make sure you know what you're doing.
