Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: My antivirus says that this program is virus!
A: If your antivirus detects this program as trojan, you probably have McAfee, Comodo, eSafe or Prevx. They don't know anything about exe-optimization-by-hands and UPX. Therefore I recommend to change antivirus.

Q: What's all those BLP settings for?
A: Check butman_readme_eng.txt.



Change log for v1.8.2:
  • Extended PNG support
  • Fixed bug when saving icon with enabled transparency view
  • Fixed bug with incorrent saving in JPEG format

    This icon only makes borders.

    So you should make an icon, and then use this tool.

    Thanks all for the comments.

    Can you explain what do you mean by this?
    In fact, program renames all icons according to chosen border (e.g. button - BTN<file name>, passive - PAS<file name>). This also affects the icon wizard.
