A couple of months ago, I ran across Jesse’s tutorial for adding a custom Windows Home Server icon to My Computer. Erik van den Berg has taken the concept and created an extended version called Homeservericon, complete with MSI installer:

As I have a custom made WHS I also wanted to have an icon in My Computer (and the Desktop) for my HomeServer. I started with the manual installation of Jesse Michael Torres and made a whole program around it. With the icon library of Gustavo Franco it becomes possible to select icons inside an .exe, .dll or .icl. It also contains an icon library with a couple of icons of home servers.

I’ve just installed the 64-bit version, and it works very well – a nice, clean way to automate the process. You can find Erik’s post over at We Got Served.
