Playbook icon missing


I've developed an App with Marmalade and am (finally) all ready to deploy...but, a few days ago my App icon went missing...it's blank and the caption text appears slightly to the right (see the attached image). It used to be fine but just stopped working.


I can also reproduce the problem with the NDK 2.1.0 'FallingBlocks' sample so I believe it's a packaging issue.

My bar-descriptor.xml has 


and the 86x86 icon is present in the bar file.


Am I missing something? Can I add attachments to this post?

Re: Playbook icon missing

you signed .bar seems to be ok. Did you try to completely remove your app from PlayBook and install signed? what about unsigned version - does it show the icon?

Re: Playbook icon missing

Thanks for that. To test further I've just installed Zinio, the free newsreader and guess what? No icon.


I can only assume its a problem with my Playbook, which for me is good news!
