Air application Icons keep getting cleared

Hi, I'm having the following issue:

I have a flash application created in Adobe Animate (on a Windows PC). As a publishing target I use AIR 32.00 for Windows. When I go to the AIR publishing settings and fill in all the fields and publish everything works fine!

However, when I then return the AIR publishing settings to change something (e.g. the version number of my application or to type in the certificate password) and publish again the app does not have icons (neither for the executable nor in the window or start bar once launched). When I look now in the *-app.xml file which stores all the relevant info the paths to the images are now blank lines. If I re-add them (using the AIR publish settings window) the lines are added after the blank lines, but ignored when publishing. I have to manually fix the XML file to see them again in my application.

Is there a fix for this? It's highly inconvenient, since I must open that settings panel every time to put in the certificate password...

Solved! I've deleted the *-app.xml file and had it regenerated. Restored all my settings and now the problem no longer persists.

I believe the xml file's formatting might have used a layout from an older AIR version (I used to target an older version than 32.00) , which somehow conflicted with how Animate updates the file.

copy the icon tags from your descriptor xml to a text file so you can easily paste it back should it become necessary.

Sure that's what I'm doing, but it's still a mighty inconvenience since it will break after each build. I would assume more people suffer from this issue and there might be a more automated solution.
