    No icon in Extras after .sis file install.

    I have an application that is installed to a Nokia 9210 via a sis file. My
    problem is that immediately after install the icon is not updated on the
    "Extras" screen - I get the standard "jigsaw piece" icon.

    After installing a different application (e.g. one of the games on the Nokia
    CD :-) or a reset (i.e. remove and re-inserting the battery) the icon is

    Does anybody have any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

    I do not build the resources by including RESOURCE and AIF entries within
    the .mmp file that is used to build the .app.

    Instead I am using bmconv and aiftool to create the .aif file and epocrc to
    create the .rsc file before calling bldmake and abld.

    Could this be the cause of the problem? Or maybe the resource scripts I have are wrong?

    As mentioned above it seems that a refresh of the "Extras" window cures the problem - is there a way to do this programmatically?

    Any help much appreciated.

    I think you dont get away without the .mbm file in your apps directory. The aif builder tool allows to do so quite easily. I always create the icons in all sizes. This makes sure the icon also appears on menu items.

    Hope this helps
