Custom Activity Icon becomes colour inverted after Act is closed and restarted

[ Edited ]

Hi

 

I have some Custom Activities and have created some custom Icons (.ICO) files.

1) Those Icons display perfectly well in Windows explorer

2) When browsed to from Act (when create a new custom activity), they Display fine

3) When the Custom Activity is first created (say I create an activity for a contact), then the custom Icons displays as expected

 

If I shutdown act and restart, the Icons are inverting in colour'

 

If I have 'white text ' on a red background for the (.ICO file) Icon, then after and forever more , Act displays that activity Icon as Red on a Whie Background

 

Has anyone seen this before

 

Currently on Act V 16SP1

Problem Solved:

 

I was generating my icons as PNG's and COnverting to .ICO format.

 

The conversion program was doing 'something' to the image that

a) Had no effect when viewed in most image viewers

b) But caused 'Act' a touch of Indigestion.

 

choosing a different utility to perform the PNG to ICO conversation has removed all issues.

 

The Icons is act , now, display perfectly fine.
