Now all my icons related to reason are generic file icons. Wasn't there a fix for this in the past? I tried digging but, no dice. :puf_unhappy:

Help!!! :puf_smile:

Re-installing R11 should fix this.

Here’s the thread from when all my refill icons disappeared. It’s happened a few times and I don’t know why.

Thanks...In my case...my guess is, the newer reason version icon associations override the older version icon associations.

That’s what I would have thought too. Looks like the refill icon completely disappeared for some reason. Had to put a refill icon in a folder then use the file manager to associate it.

I had the same thing happen this week with icons turning blank after uninstalling Reason Suite 11 when Reason 12 was already installed. Re-installing Reason 12 worked on one computer, but not the other. On that computer I'd already made the mistake of trying to "open with Reason 12" a .repatch file from windows explorer and the icon changed to the same as a Reason project file.

Using FileTypesMan from Nirsoft fixed the icons for this computer. For each file extension with a broken icon:
  1. Find it listed in FileTypesMan, right click it and then click “Replace file type for selected extensions” and choose the non ‘_auto_name’ typ (e.g I chose the proper Reason.repatch type name, that references the Reason.exe file and the icon ID -253).
  2. Right click it again, and click “Edit selected file type” and delete the text in ‘User Choice’.
  3. Restart PC and icons should be fixed.
Note, I'd reinstalled Reason12 on this computer before doing this, not sure if that made a difference or not.

Hope this helps anyone else that has blank icons on windows.
