    Can't save a edited imageres.dll with many programs

    I can't modify imageres.dll file (../windows/system32/)
    -copied and pasted to my desktop
    -full permissions
    -start programs as an administrator (I tried using Axialis IconWorkshop and with Microangelo)
    -I edit something (I don't want to add icons, modifying those existing already)
    -error, cannot save

    tried with that imageres.dll of:
    windows 8 (4.36 7/26/2012 ~ 65 MB)
    windows 8.1 (13.44 8/22/2013 ~ 47 MB)
    (this property are of files from windows ITALIAN)

    running software on windows 8 and windows 8.1 (x64)

    I don't understand where there can be the problem

    Thanks in advance auto

    I saw that I save the file only if I select the "basic mode",
    no problem, I just want to change the default icons,
    but I have another problem now,
    when I save the file, it loads with maximum resolution of 64x64 icons only (no 128 or 256x256)
