Since none this is a third party program, I would ask the developers for support on it.
You link doesn't work either.

Plug-ins are designed to be used inside Photoshop.
Move the downloaded unzipped file to x:/photoshop/plugins
Then open photoshop , open your file you want to convert to an ico file.
Then from plugins menu run the plugin you downloaded.

Icon tools

Dear Mike / David
I followed your instructions :
I moved the unzipped file to the Photoshop folder, and found "plug ins".
not 100% about which dialogue box to place it in. Tried Import / Export.

now im not sure where to find the plug in, in Photoshop.
the plug-in module is not apppearing as an option in Import / Export or in "About Plug-ins".

is there somewhere else i should be checking for the plug in ?

thanks in advance for your help.

What is the name of the plug-in?

It should be something like programname.8be (note the .8be extension)
It could also be .8ba, .8bx, .8li, or .8be

.8bf files are straight plugins
.8be are import/export files
.8li are "automate" files
.8ba are executable plugins

rinser, if you read the txt file you would of seen that it says that you copy the file to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS2\Plug-Ins\File Formats

And it works a treat.. see below.
