I can make director allow me to have a custom icon for appliacation file.
In director I have attempted this several times where I have tried to have my appliaction file have an icon. I have purchased two icon program Candy Bar and Fastincs trying to remedy this problem.
As you see here I am using an ins file created in Fastincs. Now here is an image to the path and the icon itself Applipcations/ Adobe Director 11/3 HorseLogo.mac.ins
So there is the setup now when I complile for my program file I get this.
See the grey Director icon I don't want that I want the three horse logo.
I also tried to assign the logo after publishing the file.
then I drag my icon file in
The program created in director still wont see the icon file.
in both finder and on the task bar
This is exactly what I want.
I works until I try to move the entire package into an installer program I am using BitRock. When I compile the installation program then try to run the application I get the following message
If I choose ignore the install continues. But I have no icon.
I am desperate , weeping , screaming , and almost a lost cause, any help any help at all I could really use.

I'm more of a PC person rather than Mac. I would recommend you look at the Resource and Icon Editor page at:
It may fix your icon issue from Director.
I have found that on Macs, if you have a PNG version of your icon at 512 (which is the largest icon size they use I believe), all you need to do is:
Like I said... this method works perfectly for me. I am not sure what you are trying to accomplish, but give this a try. Hopefully it solves your issue.
