How do I create a custom icon in the TEM Client?

Technote (troubleshooting)


The following instructions discuss using the IEM Admin tool to import your own Client UI icon.

Resolving the problem

The icon file should be created according to Microsoft's procedure for creating a Windows XP icon with transparency. The procedure is available here.

The icon file must be a non-standard 64 x 64 image, with transparency, and using the Windows XP icon color palette as other color schemes, such as the 256 color scheme, will not work.

Once the icon file is created, open the IEM Administration Tool. Under the Systems Options tab, find the header "Client UI Icon" and add the icon. When uploaded, the "_clientui.ico" file will appear in the actionsite directory: \BigFix Enterprise\BES Client\__BESData\actionsite.
