ADRIFT icon file location

Postby Lazzah » Thu Sep 10, 2020 7:03 am

Hi all,

When installing the latest v.36 update, a couple of the ADRIFT shortcuts on my desktop changed to a plain white folder icon. I know I can change the icon via the shortcut properties, but where would I find the ADRIFT icon files on my computer?

Any help much appreciated.

In v5.0.36.1 the icons were embedded in the exe-files (run500.exe and dev500.exe) but Campbell must have forgot to include them in v5.0.36.3 which he uploaded yesterday. What I did, was to keep v.35.0.36.1 in another folder. You can then point at those two exe-files so your short cuts to the newest version (v5.0.36.3) uses the icons from v5.0.36.1.
As an example, on my PC the path to my icons are:
C:\Users\kp\Documents\ADRIFT\ADRIFT 5.0.36\v36_older\5.0.36.1_28aug2020\dev500.exe
and
C:\Users\kp\Documents\ADRIFT\ADRIFT 5.0.36\v36_older\5.0.36.1_28aug2020\run500.exe
Even though I am using v5.0.36.3

Isn't there a webpage where we can d/l older versions of ADRIFT?

There used to be a link at the bottom of the downloads page, which seems to have disappeared. However there are a couple of files on the IF Archive

Great, thanks Campbell. However...

Hmm, ok. I've decided to re-do the Setup project after all. I've done this now, and uploaded to the website. This contains all the icons, and should associate the file types with the applications.
