I keep recieving this message as I submit my app for the App World. No matter what i do, I can't even get the icon and app name correct in the simulator, but the app works fine. Any help from anyone? i'm getting extrmemly frustrated
- I am testing your app on the BlackBerry PlayBook. Please fix the icon name so that it matches with the app name.
- There is an icon issue after installing your application on the BlackBerry PlayBook, icon appear as a question mark. Please make sure that the icon size is 86x86 in the blackberry-tablet.xml file and included in your bar file.
im using flash builder on a PC so i can use the simulator. I'd be extremely grateful for any help anyone could offer

Just to verify do you have an app icon that is in PNG format at 86x86 pixels in dimension named:
and in your XML configuration file (was: blackberry-tablet.xml) now called bar-descriptor.xml with a node like this:
I'm afraid I''m not exactly sure how Flash Builder lets you specify this icon but I'm guessing there is a configuration section for your application where this info would need to be.

yes, I currently have the icon sized at 86x86 and under where it says "The icon for the image which should be 86x86" I have <icon><image>src\blackberry-tablet-icon.PNG</image
I have the icon under src in the file directory so i specified that in the config file
Is it possible i haven't set up the configuration file properly?

So if you install the app on your simulator do you get the correct icon? I have never seen a
case where an app install on the simulator shows the correct icon but the app install on
the device does not. However, to rule out the possibility that the system may be caching
an old, correct icon while your more recent .bar builds have somehow picked up a bad icon
path, you could reboot your simulator image.
Your icon path has a backslash in it - shouldn't this be a forward slash?
You can unzip your .bar file and verify whether your icon .png file does indeed exist in the directory it
is supposed to be in.
