In this chapter we will Install Magic Workbench Icons.

If you want to have NewIcons and Scalos Installed then Please skip this chapter.

Also this version of Magic Workbench is shareware so you will need to register to get the full version. (I prefer NewIcons as 1. They look better and 2. Has no limitations.)
