Eclipse RCP export windows branding: icon (ico) only works with low resolutions [message #899016] Mon, 30 July 2012 03:44 Go to next message

I'm trying to brand my RCP application. For windows, I've created the
following ico file:

http://data.icg.tugraz.at/caleydo/download/2.0.2/caleydo.ico

It contains all the resolutions the Eclipse export wizard requires, plus
a couple of higher-resoultion versions.

However, when I look at the exported product in Windows, only the
low-res versions of the icon are mine. When I look at higher resolution
versions (e.g. the link on the desktop) my icon is replaced with the
Eclipse icon.

When looking at the ico file in windows it scales as expected.

Is my icon incorrect, or can I do something else?

Thx,
Alex

Which version of Eclipse? The high-res support only came in for Juno! And there are restrictions:

Check your build logs as there may be errors during the icon branding.

Thanks, good to know. We'll switch to juno with our next release, so I
hope it will be fixed there.

Concerning the build logs - do you mean something else than the
"Problems" view?

IIRC, Eclipse's Export functionality, which Invokes PDE/Build, may zip up the build logs which are put your deployment directory. But I may not be recalling correctly.

Yes, it does, but only occasionally. I'm not sure when it does it - last
time it did it I didn't find any errors in the logs, only warnings I
know of.

Thanks anyway!
