icon dimensions (0 x 0) don't meet the size requirements

I tried to upload the binary of my updated iphone app, and found Apple forced us to use Application Loader instead of the original iTunesConnect.

With the new approach, I got the following error

iPhone/iPod Touch: Icon.png: icon dimensions (0 x 0) don't meet the size requirements. The icon file must be 57x57 pixels, in .png format

I double-checked the image file, the size IS 57x57. I was puzzled, as it had no problem before(with iTunesConnect).

Luckily, I found the following link on Internet

where tonymy suggested

Edit Project Settings -> Build -> uncheck Compress PNG Files

As you can imagine, this glitch is not hard to avoid. I always try not to make a fetish of Apple's products, as I believe nobody is perfect.

Next time, Apple should submit their applications to get our approval before publishing, just as our apps have to wait to be approved.

Thank you. An hour of banging my head on the proverbial desk and I finally discovered your post.

One would consider that the App Approval process would check and advise on such a simple issue?

I have provided the necessary kudos to your blog in my blog about the issue...

Well thanks a lot, I was wondering why I was getting that stupid error message! (Way to go on the vague messages Apple!)
