Note to self: How to get both DropBox & TortoiseSVN shell icons working


The Windows shell only parses 15 icon overlays. Alphabetically sorted. So to get both DropBox nd TortoiseSVN’s icon sets displayed in explorer, use Regedit.exe and rename the keys under ComputerHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerShellIconOverlayIdentifiers to order them to your liking.


Restart Explorer.exe and things should be OK.
