Hello,
I want to customize my user folders icons, in my Windows 10 (with dark theme + UXThemePatcher).
I tried using Customizer God, but it gives me an error: "UpdateResource#3\#1156 failed: The parameter is incorrect."
Is there any other way to customize icons (or fix this error)?

Thanks for help!

Only continue if you feel comfortable editing your registry. Editing your registry wrong can destroy your system requiring a full reinstall of Windows. Make a backup before editing it. Know how to restore that backup before editing it. More info here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/how-to-back-up-and-restore-the-registry-in-windows-855140ad-e318-2a13-2829-d428a2ab0692

I just tested this and it worked for me.

Here is results that I see. I changed the Music icon only. I did have to create the correct registry keys because they were not already there.
