Sharepoint 2010 Foundation server Red X's

I currently have a new single server SP2010, this is not an upgrade but a clean install (chose farm so I could define SQL). The issue is that .xls, .xlsx, ,pdf (even though I have added the icon to the \images folder and modified the docicon.xml) all show up as red X's in libraries. This is not the issue that I keep finding online where the icon works just fine execpt in search results. This is in the actual library. The issue is happening on all sites from the root down, and with all users including the admin. What I find odd is that .doc and .docx work just fine.

Any suggestions?

can you share your copy of this file docicon.xml

there might be a syntax problem

also make sure you have the icons on the proper file location.

Attached you will find the .xml - I have been over it a few times, but I am also known to mis typo's often.
As for the location of the images, they are in "Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\IMAGES" - I have tried both .png and .gif - I have given full control to Everyone just to see if it was that.. no avail.
Any help would be great thanks.

I replaced my .xml file with the one you  sent me and restarted IIS - still same issue - .doc(x) files work .xls(x) and .pdf do not - there are also other file extensions that show a red X image place holder such as .udf - now normally (at least with WSS 3.0) for an unknown image type I do not remember getting that red x place holder.. though I could be wrong.
Any other ideas? I have already re-ran the install for a repair... my goal is to NOT backup and restore, but.........

there were so many invalid cnotrol chars in the file .. that i missed last time.

i am guessing you copied that from a web site that might had some formatting.


glad it worked.
