Website and download links seem to be broken.

Thanks, Emka. The download link points to http://web.archive.org/web/20110204080136/http://icofx.ro/anifx/files/anifxpe.zip now. I've also added a mention to the PA.c version.
When IcoFX went payware, cursors edition capabilities were added to it. Probably, that's the reason why AniFX was killed.

@the_watcher - I'm on Win 8.1 and don't use Windows Explorer that often so I can't really verify. I use CubicExplorer.

Does anyone know of a way I could use this as a replacement "Sendto" menu. There's no software I've found that can do it. I would love to make my Sendto menu more portable when reinstalling Windows.

It looks as if Lupo's UniExtractor (1.6) is having troubles with the latest Launchy executable v2.5.

"Signature detected: Inno Setup Setup Data (5.3.8)
This is not directly supported, but i'll try to unpack it as version 5306
; Version detected: 5308
Unpacking failed. This version is not supported."

Mike.S.G. on 2010-04-07 03:50

This is how I fixed the problem...

I use Lupo's Universal Extractor - get the latest (v1.6 R8) updated Jan, 23, 2010. One problem, 'InnoUnp' is only @ 0.28, so you will need to get the latest 'innounp.exe' and update the \bin folder. This will do the trick, 'Launchy2.5.exe' can be extracted.

Doesn't run for me on Win10. Launches, locks up and I have to force close to get rid of it. That's from a clean run.

@rogerthedodger: you can download the PortableApps.com package. Extract or install it, the contents of the APP folder is all you need, delete the rest. After the first launching of IcoFX.exe the configuration files will be created

Rodger on 2013-01-06 10:04

small fonts (on the app itself) = @ Kermode
Found a solution !
Dowmoad 12noon Dispay Changer (free -> google): very nice prgram, helps me a lot with old programs on my new large screen !
Install. Go to folder where installed, make a shortcut from the cd.exe folder.
Rightclick on shortcut, open properties
Richtclick IcoFX.exe, open properties, highlight target command line, copy (Ctrl + c)
Go to THE END of the same line (target) in the IconFX properties, paste (Ctrl + v); leave a space between both (there are quotation marks at the beinning and at the end of both)
Go to the space and type (without quotation marks, but leaving again a space before, in between and at the end) "-width=1152 -height=864" (or any other screen size COMPATIBLE with your screen, e.g. 1600x 900 1027x768, etc; see help of dc to find out which screen sizes are compatible).
Close properties of both.
Change the name and icon of dc.exe to IcoFX.
That's it !
(When you close IcoFX, the screen will automatically return to its initial size, so the change onlw affcts this program !)

Specular on 2015-01-06 18:35

The busy XP screenshot doesn't do the app justice. Worthwhile app for icon creation and extraction. Main limitation of this version is the lack of 512px+ size support, which OSX and now Windows 10 support.

@Dot and Midas: BIG Thanks to both of you!! Version 2.9 is perfect.
I have been testing so many of these rss apps its ridiculous,
they all seem to require IE in some manner or other.
Version 2.9 is exactly what I have been lookin for.
I have found a couple of good ones mind you but this one is superb :)

Thanks GoD, for pointing to Taskix. It is portable, undemanding (1MB memory footprint) and gets the job done...

Data on 2008-05-16 18:57

Useful App for organizing taskbar buttons and system tray icons for easier access. It is not as memory friendly as Taskix but I have found that after running this for a little while its memory usage drops to just below 1,500 KB. The author comments on this in response to the second question at
http://www.freewebs.com/nerdcave/faq.htm
Although I am a memory (RAM) conservationist, I prefer Taskbar Shufle to Taskix because its visual effects for dragging buttons and system tray icons is simply easier on the eyes than the sudden and more eye straining transition provided by Taskix.
