    OlbyTile - Small Tile Image Not Woring in Windows 8.1


    Dear reader(s),

    I have been customizing my Start Screen on Windows 8.1 with OlbyTile version 0.9.1.
    Click image for larger version









    It seems to be working fine. Although, when I upload a small tile image to the program (30x30), while one would anticipate that the image should appear in its smaller state in the Apps List, instead it looks like this:
    Click image for larger version


    Is anyone else experiencing a problem as such? As you can see, all the tiles I modified have the selected colours applied in OlbyTile, but the images all consist of Internet Explorer icons. A reinstall may be a reasonable course of action, that or the creators need to update OlbyTile. Still, if anyone has a solution for this problem, please let me know, thanks.

    Why not use the newest version OlbyTile 0.9.7 ?

    Latest Version: OblyTile v0.9.7

    ChangeLog (among other): Fixed a problem that made the tile preview show the Small Tile image wrong.

    Tested on: Windows 8.1 Professional Build 9600 - 32/64 Bit

    It seems this was the case, it's too bad the version I was using was not set for automatic updates, but no matter, this is why I posted this thread, thank you Nifu.
