IconCache not found on server 2k12(2012) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    We are having an icon issue which is not getting refreshed to the new one and always showing the old icon on desktop shortcut despite several uninstallation and restart. We had the same issue in server 2k3 but below steps worked,

    • Click Start button > Hold down <kbd>Ctrl</kbd>+<kbd>Shift</kbd> & Right Click on empty area in the Start Menu.
    • Select "Exit Explorer".
    • Hold <kbd>Ctrl</kbd>+<kbd>Shift</kbd>+<kbd>Esc</kbd> keys to open Task Manager.
    • Select "File" > "New Task".
    • Type: cmd (and press <kbd>Enter</kbd>). This will open the command prompt.
    • Type: cd /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local (and press <kbd>Enter</kbd>)
    • Type: attrib –h IconCache.db (and press <kbd>Enter</kbd>)
    • Type: del IconCache.db (and press <kbd>Enter</kbd>)
    • Type: start explorer (and press <kbd>Enter</kbd>)

    But for 2k12 it is giving message iconcache not found. Can we be helped with this issue.
