My team is currently having an issue with custom icons not appearing in either the task bar or the game window in our packaged game. After doing some research, we discovered a known issue that is similar to ours, the only differences being that we are using an older version of the engine (the issue lists 4.21 and we are using 4.19) and that we are currently using a source built version of the engine as opposed to a binary version (binary in layman’s terms being a download from the Epic Games Launcher).
I have included a link to the issue that I am citing here:
I realize that there is a long history of problems with custom icons within Unreal 4, and that there are countless questions on the matter, but none of them have provided us with a solution to this problem. Please get back to me with a solution as soon as you are able. Thank you in advance!
EDIT: We were able to open up a .exe for the built version of our game in Visual Studio, and we noticed that the .exe’s information is not being populated from the project settings; for example, we have a company name filled out, but in Visual Studio the .exe’s CompanyName field still shows up as the (presumably) default “Epic Games, Inc.”. Hope this helps anyone investigating!
