As I understand it ( it's necessary to delete and recreate the published app for the icon change to take affect (otherwise it retains the old icon bit settings)- have you tried publishing a new app to see if that works on its own?

I did that as well. i replublsied the application and the icon looks even worse. it is being displayed as small squares. maybe the file that i am using is not correct. i am also a bot confused with resolution, color bit, color depth. maybe if you have a sampl icon could try that one our. what should be the size, color depth of the ico file.

May also want to check how much video ram is allocated. I think in that version it may default down to 4 and not 8 which can effect this as well.

Right Click Farm - Properties
Server Default Heading - ICA - Display
I set ours to a maximum 8192KB
