Does your SharePoint http://companyweb site running on SBS 2003 or R2 still show missing icons for PDF files you’ve uploaded? Tsk-tsk.
GOOD – Back in the day we used to fix this problem manually by uploading the 16×16 PDF icon, updating the XML file, and restarting IIS. Tedious, but effective.
BEST – Skip forward to 2007 and Chad’s super-handy tool has gotten WAY better. The new version works with WWS 2.0 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0! Chad’s rewritten it in VBS, updated the icon to a newer PNG, and it creates an output logfile at C:\pdficon.log so you can make sure everything went smoothly. Mega sweet! Download the NEW PDF icon tool and try it out today!
I carry it on a USB drive keychain with my other must-have utilities. Getting a PDF icon to display in SharePoint has never been easier. Thanks Chad! You rock!!
