Hello everyone, 

I need your input in finding the right place for changing the default Esri icon when installing the add-in. We want to change it as below:

I tried changing the value below as a start with no effect. Not sure where these icons are getting loaded from.

 

  <AddInInfo>
    <Name>...</Name>
    <Description>...</Description>
    <Image>Images/arcGIS_addin_32.png</Image>
    <Author>...</Author>
    <Company>...</Company>
    <Date>...</Date>
    <Subject>...</Subject>
  </AddInInfo>

 

 Please let me know your thoughts/ideas

Thank you,
Trushar

The Images folder referenced in the DAML is contained within the folder that contains the compiled Add-In. for example, if my GUID for the Add-In was {ae190f33-95f2-4249-ae7d-bcfa45a44e72} then I would store my add in at C:\my folder path\{ae190f33-95f2-4249-ae7d-bcfa45a44e72}\. The compiled Dlls for the add-in would be in the {ae190f33-95f2-4249-ae7d-bcfa45a44e72} folder and the png files would be in the .\Images folder..

Do you have that image in your Images directory? This is how my project is set up

It is interesting that your custom image is showing up and mine isn't!

After a nice clean build I see it now! 

The only thing that isn't showing my custom images is this:

Thoughts on this, if we are able to change these icons?

My addin shows the generic Esri icon in the File Manager and the utility. Those are tied to the ESRI AddIn File type, just like all Word files use the same icon.

Trushar,

At ArcGIS Pro 3.4, when you double click an addin to install it, you will be able to see the custom icon.

My Add-ins show unique Icons in ArcGIS Pro Add-Manager screen. The image must be available to the Add-In when run on the client's computer. Yes in File Manager they will look like regular files (based on Windows defaults).
