Icon not showing up in dock Applications menu

This isn't a problem that affects the functionality of my laptop, but it just annoys me and I wondered if anyone knew how to fix it!
I installed a new program, and it works just fine. But the "correct" icon for the program does not appear in the Applications menu. It looks normal on the dock, but the icon in both Applications menus (in the Finder and on the dock) is some kind of error/default icon. It looks like a piece of paper with a pencil covered by a white circle with a line through it (as in the symbol on a 'no smoking' sign.)
Does anyone know how I can get the icon of the actual program to appear here? Thanks!

I just hit this problem as well, earlier this week when my MacBook keyboard stopped responding, so I expected it had something to do with a problem with the hardware or software on my laptop.
Now that I'm doing some diagnostics on the drive and the hardware, I am NOT finding any kind of specific problem that would be causing icons to stop showing in the Dock. As others have clarified, this problem is NOT that icons show up as "not allowed" with the circle-strikethrough icon, but that the application does not appear *at all* - the spot below the icon indicating that the application is running appears, but the application icon will not display. I have had this issue with both applications that are running and applications that have been quit, and either state change can cause the icons to disappear, but I can't find a way to reliably reproduce the issue. Icons just appear or disappear seemingly at random.
Once the surface scan is complete on the drive I've been using as my main boot drive, I'll try the "move-app-from-Apps-folder, then-back-again" trick to see if it gets the icons to appear again.

  • Icons not showing up in Dock

    I've got OSX Snow Leopard running and everything was great. However, recently, when I open a program from spotlight, the icon will not show up in the dock. Any suggestions?

    delete the file homedirectory/library/preferences/com.apple.dock.plist and log out/in. your dock, spaces and exposé will be reset to the defaults. see if the dock behaves after that.

    If your problem persists get yourself a micro USB cable (sold separately), you can restore your Apple TV from iTunes:
    Remove ALL cables from Apple TV. (if you don't you will not see Apple TV in the iTunes Source list)
    Connect the micro USB cable to the Apple TV and to your computer.
    Open iTunes.
    Select your Apple TV in the Source list, and then click Restore.

  • I Published a report on the report server but it's not showing in the internal application we use to access reports

    Hi, 
    I Published a report on the report server but it's not showing in the internal application we use to access reports. The name of the application we use is called MAMA and this application has access to all the reports on the SQL report server. My email is
    [email protected] my cell phone number is 201-888-7952. 
    Thanks. 

    Hi Roger,
    Based on my understanding, you publish a report on the report server. When you access reports with internal application, the report doesn’t display, right?
    In your scenario, since you mentioned you have published the report to report server, please go to report manager, check if you can see the published report and open the report properly. If the published report is displayed on report manager, it should not
    be the issue in Reporting Services. In this scenario, since the MAMA application has established connection with on report server, it may not update items on report server after you publish your report onto report server. So please try to “refresh” in MAMA
    or reconnect the report server. If issue persists, I suggest you contact the MAMA application vendor to get some more effective advices.
    If you have any question, please feel free to ask.
    Best regards,
    Qiuyun Yu

  • App icons not showing up after downloading?

    Why do my app icons not show up on my iPad2? I have purchased the apps on my iPad directly. Also, I know they are there because when I search it finds them and then I can open and run them.

    Jennifer-
    Could the Apps be on the second page of Apps?  From your Home page, wipe across from right to left to scroll to page 2.
    If that is the problem, press and hold on the icon.  When it starts to wiggle, you can drag it back to the first page.  This can also be done from iTunes when the iPad is selected.

    Download it again, don't install again and the file (Lion Installer.app) will be in your applications folder.
    It is deleted after installation, that's why it can't be found.

  • Mac icons not showing in dock application folder

    any suggestions?

    this is only happening in the dock application folder
    icon appears correctly everywhere else at all sizes

  • Menu display names not showing properly in CS applications.

    In an effort to greatly reduce the burden on our catalog production staff, I am attempting to tweak an existing font whose bullet character is too large (so that they don't have to manually reduce the size of every bullet). I have successfully done this using Fontagrapher 4.7, however, I can't seem to get the name of the font to display properly in the font menu of Adobe products.
    Specifically, this is a font with many different weights, and those weights are indicated by a number in front of the name (e.g., 47 Light Condensed). In Quark Xpress, the name properly displays with my new font family name (a variation on the original) and the correct weight/style name. However, the adobe products identify the font by the generic weight named assigned by Fontographer (e.g., LightCn). This is also the same naming that appears in Suitcase for BOTH fonts, the original and my modified version. I'd like the name to display the number and full weight/style name as that's what the production staff is used to.
    I'm using Fontographer 4.7, outputting Type 1 fonts to an exclusively Mac environment. I'm not sure if this has to do with the way that Adobe products display the names. Any suggestions and information would help.

  • App-V 5.0 SP1 application icons not showing up

    Hi,
    I've set up clean App-V 5.0 SP1 environment (Server, Sequencer and Clients). Published applications works when accessing them from %Localappdata%\Microsoft\AppV\Client\Integration\... folder, but for some reason the application shortcut icons are not showing
    up correctly either in start menu or in desktop (defined desktop folder for shortcuts in App-V Server settings just for test).
    So, there is this shortut on start menu, but it's not showing application icon and when opening shortcut properties it does not show application, it only shows "start in" folder (which is %localappdata%\etc..).
    I've tried this now on Windows 7, Windows 8 and on 2008R2 server (rds client). Same "error" appears on all machines, and application icon is not showing up correctly.
    Matti

    That sounds very strange. Have you checked out the event viewer logs? You should enable the Advanced view and check them out. Also may be worth while making a copy of the .appv file and renaming it to zip, opening up and looking for the shortcuts in the
    AppXManifest.XML file...see if you notice anything a miss there. Also the most obvious would be to take a copy of the package, open it for upgrade and ensure the shortcuts appear under Shortcuts and FTAs.
