To anyone that stumbles onto this post I would like to assure you that the ICOFormat plugin is alive and kickin and works well within CC, you need to create a folder ( if its not there already ) called "File Formats" inside of your C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CC 2015\Plug-Ins\File Formats <----- drop the plug-in inside this folder
Just go the site - Telegraphics - Free plugins for Photoshop & Illustrator...and other software scroll down

There is always iConvert icons
The ICO (Windows Icon) Format plugin for Mac CS5/CS6 seems to work here with photoshop cc 2015 on Mac OS X 10.11.2
I just opened the downloaded dmg file and dragged the ICOFormat plugin to /Applications/Adobe Photoshop CC 2015/Plug-ins
Does this work with 2018?
I've installed the old ICOFormat plugin, straight into the /Applications/Adobe Photoshop CC 2018/Plug-ins folder, and it works fine in CC 2018.
