Didn't follow you quite right... If you are planning to use Rainmeter's FileView plugin like this then no. FileView is a dll whic can be used by Rainmeter only, unless you mod it to work with other apps.

If you want to extract icon files from files then PowerShell can come to your rescue.

If you want or get file icon in Rainmeter, you got FileChoose plugin for that. See resolve command.

i am building a skin that can show you the thumbnails from video and pictures files.
i have a powershell script that extract the other files. like from a text file or a exe file.
but the quality of that is very low.

fileview have beautiful icons extracted from files. :) so i am going to do it in C# this time.

have not seen the file choose plugin. so i will look at it. :yawn:
