I have been using Neobook for numerous years and love the tool. I ran into a snag this week. All of a sudden most of my icons cannot be compiled with a pub.
I receive a compile icon failure. If I cancel by it, the compile will continue.

video capture ... -11-47.mp4

I looked at the posts and tried different drives, different resolutions and all are 256x256 or less.

Any ideas would be appreciated. BTW, problem occurred one ver back and with latest update. currently at 5.8.7. Easily producible.

Problem: "Unable to compile icon" error is displayed.
Background: I recently started to have an issue that I never experienced before. The version I have now is 5.8.7 with Windows 10. I removed new antivirus, no change. That left Windows Defender. I turned it off and voila problem fixed! Moments later it automatically turned on, thank you Microsoft. Here is how to make it stop from automatically running. Do not make changes to your registry unless you know what you are doing.

Open regedit and go to


Open the subkey corresponding to the service you wish to change (WinDefend), and modify the value of 'Start' to equal either "2" (for automatic), "3" (for manual) or "4" (for disabled)

End Result: The "Unable to compile icon" error is now fixed.

Windows Defender and most other anti-virus tools provide an option to set exclusions for specific files and folders. This will turn off the real time scanning for specific files and folders only rather than the entire PC. Programmers often exclude the folders they use to compile their apps. This speeds up compiling exponentially and eliminates strange errors like the one discussed here.
