Go to AveIconifier temp folder (usually: C:\Program Files\AveIconifier2\temp) and grab the icons.
It is recommended to remove the files from temp folder after conversion because AveIconifier will overwrite them without asking you.
Also, don’t close the software after conversion, ’cause it removes all icons from temp folder.
Don’t forget: Always remove the icons from temp folder when the conversion process is finished!
By default, AveIconifier converts the PNG files in 5 common icon sizes – 32 X 32, 48 x 48, 64 x64, 96 x 96 and 128 x 128 pixels. You can add 3 more sizes – 16 x 16, 24 x 24 and 72 x 72 pixels – by right-clicking onto the left pane.
