trouble packaging playbook app

Hey guys, I have become increasingly frustrated whilst trying to package the final release of this app I have developed. I have followed all the steps very closely and still when I export the release build in flash builder 4.6 I get the following error message "Packaging Failed:1, Warning: Cannot find application or default icon. Error: Attribute Entry-Point-Icon: File cannot be found in the list of packaged files: src/blackberrytableticon.png"

Any ideas on how I can fix this? The icon is in the src directory, and it says that it is one of the included packaged files and yet I keep getting this error. I was hoping to submit before the 13th but I have no idea how to get past this. 

I would really appreciate any help.

Kind regards

Re: trouble packaging playbook app

I'm guessing here, but since the final .bar file doesn't contain a "src" folder, I suspect that you've incorrectly specified the source path with the src/ prefix in your XML file, when you should (here's the guess) specify the location in the output file.

In short, try removing any leading "src/" from the <image> element where you specified the location of that icon file.

ahh you absolute hero. Thank you so much. I now have the .bar file, hopefully now going to check it is all ok. BTW I recognise you from crackberry, i'm the paranoid battery guy. Thanks again.

Re: trouble packaging playbook app

ok I think it is ready to be sent for consideration now. One quick question though, the css file is named HelloWorld whereas I have made it clear in the blackberry-tablet.xml and the application name etc. that this is not the name of the app. The .bar file I have made is thus HelloWorld.bar, will this matter if i send it off like that?

Re: trouble packaging playbook app

The name you enter in the product's vendor portal listing is what it gets published as. Nothing else really matters.
