I've tried that and I think have it almost working. After restarting my 
i-mac it only shows the proper icons in some of the open file dialog 
windows. I'm still not getting that Rev icon to change and the finder 
still shows that Rev icon when the app is running. The standalone 
builder creates two icons in the resource file 128 & 129. I replaced 
both icons with the same Icon that I needed, leaving them as 128 & 129. 
At least I'm getting closer. I was searching for a way to check other 
things in the resource to get the new icons working. Searching the 
internet only gives me basic instructions that make it so simple yet 
something is still not working. I can't believe I've avoided this for 
so many years and now trying it out, I must be missing something.
