Placed favicon.ico file in the Intraweb EXE directory  (running in Application mode) and its supposed to be picked-up by Intraweb app to display it on the browser's tab..

Am I missing something? is it supposed to be in another directory ?
TIA

The resulting web page should have

 <link rel="shortcut icon" href="images/wlkp.ico" type="image/x-icon">
 <link rel="icon" href="images/wlkp.ico" type="image/x-icon">

in the <HEAD> section

Quoting from the Intraweb official web site:

"Favicon.ico must now be placed in the ContentDir rather than the FilesDir."

Which version of IntraWeb and Delphi are you using? For IW XI it's the ContentDir, otherwise it's still the FilesDir...

I don't have to reboot to clear the cash - just go shopping with my wife and/or kids will do that for me... (sorry, couldn't resist) ;-)

I'm sitting for about 16 hours now in front of my laptop, I better go to sleep or I am going to need a reboot myself : )

Sorry I meant cache.

eBob.. the funny part is..  jimyX 's solution worked.. so there must be a bug in the caching mechaniism.. nothing else worked.

Although the shopping option wors as well :)

Just think og how much you can spend if you can reset the cash owed everytime you reboot :)

Cheers.

For the record... the issue seems to be more apparent on 2K3 systems and reboot was the only way out..
Even reseting D2010...
Wonder if same issue with other Delphi versions
