Softgrid FAQs : Blank Icons on published Applicataions.


I have seen this due to two reasons.

  1. While capture the icons were not captured properly:
    1. Resolution: Extract the icons from the executable and then use it.
  2. The icons does not have proper icons size 16×16
    1. Resolution: Extract the icons from the executable and then use it

Note: One can use iconsucker, IconSnatcher or similar tool. Always remember to save the icon in 16×16 size and do not forget to update the OSD files to point to the new icons.

  1. Thanks Mayank good tips – your tip for #2 – we not only had to do that but had to pull the icon into an icon editor and resize it. The app squenced and launched in the sequencer but wouldn’t from the client. Not all icons are created symmetrical. On AppVirt engagements when sequencing it’s prudent to load up a USB stick with a few tools like PaintDotNet – a freeware image editor and IconFX another free tool. Application Virtualization with AppVirt is an art and a science.
