    Hi friends :),

    I have a little problem: I created my own, custom file type named "GameBox Archive", the file extension is .gameboxarchive . When I was at the first steps of my development, I added a test icon to my project, just to look, if everything works. It worked and my custom GameBox Archive files had all this ugly test icon.
    Now I created a new icon and replaced it with the ugly test icon. But in Finder the GameBox Archive files have the ugly test icons.
    What do I wrong?

    Thanks for any help.

    Have nice day,

    Linus

    Have you forced the Finder to re-cache the icon? Try restarting the machine then running the app with the new icon in it.
