    I have an icns file that shows all of the various sizez using Icon
    Composer. I used PB to change the Target entry to use the .icns file.
    But, fter rebulding the app, the app's icon is still the generic icon.
    I have tried to flush the OS X cache, and have logged out & in and even
    restarted but I still get the generic app icon.
    any ideas?

    Icon Browser seems to show a valid icns file.
    Can I get an .icns file from an existing app and ise it?? Or one of
    Icon Factoy's icons??

    thanks

    Try selecting Build -> Clean from the menu in PB? Then build your app
    the normal way, the app's icon should be the one you specified after
    that.

    You have to specify which icon file to use in the Info.plst file. You do
    this by clicking on the 'Targets' tab in PB and doing what comes
    naturally. :-)
