          Please share your config.xml file (sans identifying information) so we can double check if there are any problems there.

              Is the location of the icon images the same as specified in config.xml? Given your paths, your project should look like this:


              (project root)/











              Make sure that the case you specify in config.xml matches your file system; if your file system has "images" instead of "Images", that will fail.
