  1. buddy it's not working re.. if u have both files plz upload them

  2. Its working dude... just checkout the extension of your image... and its only one file that too.. Desktop.ini along with consisting images in a folder named "folder settings"

  3. Hii iam vinay...image is not cuming on drives its not wrking...can u tel me clearly...should i install MS office 4r this

  4. @vinay
    Hi vinay no need of any ms office..or any other softwares...

    first you need to create a folder named as "folder settings" and then place the images what you want to display

    then create a text file and copy the above code into the text file and save it as "Desktop.ini"
    and in the code where "IMAGEFILENAME.JPG" you should replace it with your image name. I mean if you place abc.jpeg image into the folder settings then you have to replace "IMAGEFILENAME.JPG" with abc.jpeg please check the file extention of your image it might be problem ther .. if it is jpg/bmp/png/jpeg the same extention should be used in the Desktop.ini file.
    Let me know the status...

  6. @Vinay
    The "folder settings" folder and "Desktop.ini" to be in a same drive i mean you have to place these two into example D:/ check the file extention once again in command prompt... once go to the path where you placed the image and type dir it will display the exact file extention and that should be placed into "Desktop.ini" file
