CS6 Publish AIR for iOS, conflicting path error (icons)

Sep 20, 2013 9:40 AM

Hey all,


Win 7 Pro 64bit, Flash CS6 latest update, AIR latest (


In Flash CS5.5 I've never seen this error but in CS6 I get this error constantly, than some icons path conflicts with another in the same path. This is just an old project I never converted to Flash Builder (no issue like this) nor have seen the issue in CS5.5.


Here's the error on a dummy project I literally set up just to create a reproducable error. File->New AIR ( for iOS project,  set the SWF/IPA/Icon paths in publish settings, include the folders for the icons (auto-gen'd by Flash), and the error happens every time:




I've researched it quite a bit and usually people change the paths of where icons are stored or just put the icons in the root path of the app to get rid of the error. Neither of these work for me.


For now I just continue to use the command line to compile these projects but it's becoming a real hassle.


Anyone find out the root cause of this?

    This just has happened to me using Flash Pro CC v and AIR SDK 4.0 1619. I solved it by removing the icons folder from the Included files list at AIR for IOS Settings-> General
