From the documentation:

IconBuilder is a filter for use with Adobe Photoshop™ that makes creating icons a
snap. IconBuilder combines the power and flexibility of Photoshop with the ease of
use of the Mac OS to make a powerful icon creation tool for both beginner and
advanced users. The filter comes in two versions - IconBuilder Lite and IconBuilder Pro.
The feature sets between these two versions vary slightly and you’ll want to examine
which version best fits your needs prior to registering the software. IconBuilder Pro
has all of the functionality of Lite plus the added ability to construct icons for the
Windows operating system (95, 98, NT, 2000 & XP), has extended support for creating
icons for Mac OS X and a few other cross platform related features.

Written by veteran Photoshop filter author - Craig Hockenberry, IconBuilder is an ideal
"real world" solution for creating 32 bit icons for the numerous versions of the Mac
and Windows OS’s, including thumbnail (128x128 pixel) icons in OS X. Thanks to the
use of layers (and their transparent properties), Photoshop makes the perfect editor
to create the blended shadows, smooth outlines and translucent areas that modern
icons demand. IconBuilder has the ability to translate any kind of transparent effect
done in Photoshop layers, quickly and easily into icons for Mac OS 8.5, Mac OS X,
Windows XP and beyond.

Keep in mind that IconBuilder itself is not an icon editor. You use Adobe Photoshop
as your editor, in combination with IconBuilder as your assembly tool. Using this
method, making icons has never been easier!

Included here for download is the PRO version

It might be worth it for someone to upload IconBuilder Pro 2.0 (the final version) for Windows here as well, since that seems to be fairly hard to find. If I am wrong in requesting this, please take down this statement.

I never found these Photoshop plugins / templates for making icons any good anyway. It's much easier to use a proper icon editor (like Icon Machine III).
