Bjorn, Thanks for getting back to me. I tried what you suggested. The icon did not change, on a GXD file. I should of added, that when I double click on the generic icon it opens in General Cadd 12. This is new to me, because I was a hold out with XP. Now I made an "upgrade to Windows 7". All other programs, have the correct Icon. Is this a cadd issue, or a window 7 issue? Should I place a help ticket?
