Icon restore Clone?

I've been using the above on Vista for a while & think it's a v.good little bit of software.
For convoluted reasons I've had to go onto Vista 64bit & find that I can't get Icon Restore to operate.
Has anyone got a workround to the installation problems or an equivalent progam ?

I tried the "Save and Restore Desktop Icon Layout in Windows Vista" from your howtogeek . com link on Windows XP Pro & Windows XP and it appears to work correctly on both.

It's a much more elegant solution than adding an extra programme just to remember the positions of icons on the desktop. On thing a bit unclear, in the instructions for use, is that you right-click on the My Computer icon to see the extra Save & Restore options.

Of course, anyone trying this out should backup their system before doing so.
