It is not necessary to have Windows 10 for the crssh to occur.  Also crashes in Windows 8.1 at attemts to access the Appearance panel. A very small price to pay to have a mic icon that makes sense.

With fear and trembling I installed the above-mentioned Resource Hacker (thanks diligence). Starting with a copy of the original 15.3 DLL I found both of the (identical) "mic-on-a-blue-background" icons, exported one, edited it with, imported it in both places then saved the DLL. After exiting both KnowBrainer and Dragon, I replaced the original DLL with my new version AND IT WORKED! I now have an upright black microphone on a yellow background for my "asleep" icon in the taskbar (this does not affect the already "mic-on-a-yellow-background" icon which shows up when Dragon's GUI is not "taskbar-pinned&rdquo.

The crashing on "Appearance" is resolved.

I've attached a zip version - use at your own risk.  (2216 KB)

Good job Edgar. 


My eyes are getting worse so I made an additional "high contrast" version for those who have trouble seeing the Dragon tray icons (from a distance). Those who like to test it, use it at your own risk (but I didn't encounter any problems on my system ;-))



















"!"  = Off

"S" = Sleep

"T" = Talk


You can probably use this for Dragon profiles in other languages as well rename it to: dd10rfra, dd10rita, dd10rnld etc. replacing the original ones, but I haven't tested this (first backup the original files!).
