Windows 10 Explorer icons gone after 2.5.x update

Recommended Posts

On all my Windows 10 boxes (6 of them) I've lost all the Explorer icons... I've tried reinstalling Sync and nothing corrects it... I deleted the old 2.4.x registry keys for the ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers prior to reinstalling Sync and it seems the 2.5.x installer is not adding new ones. Anyone else have this issue and know of a way to correct it?

Did you try these tips? 
 

Just tried the help on that page and I still don't get the overlay icons... what's strange is, after registering the DLL files per the instructions (I copy/pasted the Explorer URL and DLL file names quoted so I know they were exact) I can still delete those files even after a restart... the documentation says if they're registered, you won't be able to delete them because the system will see them as in use. Screenshot attached just shows registering the one, but I did the x64 and x86 versions.

a workaround : 
 

1. Unregister the overlay dlls from AppData using command 'regsvr32 /i /u <.....dll>" (same as registering but with /u flag). 
At this point  entries from registry will disappear: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers
2. Uninstall Sync. You can preserve the settings (keep option "Remove settings" unchecked). 
3. Go to ProgramData\Resilio Sync and manually delete any ShellExtOverlay.....dll that remain there. You might need relaunch explorer or again unregister it if it wouldn't get deleted. 
4. install Sync. At this point you shall see v2.5.2 entries appear in registry.

Same issue here.

I followed the workaround but unfortunately it doesn't work.

are you also expecting icons in Quick Access tab? I've rechecked and looks like overlay icons are not supported there.

I have one Windows laptop and one Windows tablet. The overlay icon works perfectly on the tablet (both in the Quick access list and in the right window of the Explorer). The sync icon on my laptop disappeared since version 2.5.13.
