    Question Application icon does not show on phone

    I have a Nokia E61i phone and can't set the icon for my applicaitons. Thus, when I go to the installed applicaitons list the applications show no icon (on Grid and List view).

    I got this behaviour in each of the following cases.

    I tried the following examples that comes with the "S60 3rd FP2 SDK" and used the "*s60_3rd_ed_gcce.pkg" package files:
    - <...\S60_3rd_FP2_SDK\S60CppExamples\MyView>
    - <...\S60_3rd_FP2_SDK\S60CppExamples\Localization>

    In the above 2 projects I also tried the following. I replaced the 44x44 icon with a 42x29 icon to see if it makes a difference. No, still no icon.

    Then I created a new GUI application with the Carbide 1.3 (build 24) wizard. By default it shows the standard Puzzle icon. To sest my own icons I changed the "<ProjectName>.rss" file and modified the number_of_icons and icon_file setting as follow:

    RESOURCE LOCALISABLE_APP_INFO r_localisable_app_info
    short_caption = STR_TestGUIApplication_5;
    caption_and_icon = CAPTION_AND_ICON_INFO
    caption = STR_TestGUIApplication_4;
    number_of_icons = 1;
    icon_file = "\\Resource\\Apps\\TestGUI_aif.mif";

    After I installed this application to my phone it also showed no icon. Also here did I try different icons sizes 44x44 and 42x29 but no luck.

    Is there someone out there that know what I am missing or don't understand?

    This is common and known. Your device (http://www.forum.nokia.com/devices/E61i) is 3rd edition noFP, while your SDK is FP2. http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...ded_SVG_images is the relevant article.
