Fatal error: Error while updating the Windows icon. Wine (winehq.org) must be installed to add custom icons from Mac and Linux.

wine is installed and up to date. but there's no "anolis" dir in there indeed.

the linux build shows a grey window with 'nw.js" in black (unfinished build?)

Hmm, I've never seen these happen - I'll check the mac one next time I'm on a mac.

Win10: Are you running as admin? 

"the linux build shows a grey window with 'nw.js" in black (unfinished build?)" - From memory, this happens when it can't find the index.html file in the build.

yes, running as admin. not sure there's more I can say, "symlink" problem on windows (should be mklink?), "anolis" not present in wine on linux.

the unpractical thing is that it stops at any error and doesn't build anything at all. maybe each build should be treated separately? also it boldly stops when you're offline, even if the cached files are still there and good to go (got isp problems). all in all it seems to only work well when nothing goes wrong ;)

in the end I disabled the non-working builds so I can build for windows/linux on windows, and for linux/mac on linux. I haven't tested the resulting mac build yet, but the others work ok. the only bummer is that I get 200Mb+ worth of files for a 700kb web game. but that's another story ;)

If anyone's still getting the "symlink" error, it seems the issue starts with nwjs 0.22 and onwards. If you change your version in Gruntfile.js to '0.21.1' it'll work fine.

I'll try and find a way to correct this in the next release.

hi! this is a really cool tool - thanks for making it :)

I've encountered a few issues though; let me know if you have any thoughts on how to solve them! (I'm on Mac btw)

1. Just want to note that the symlink error is still a problem for me. I couldn't launch the generated .app file at all at first. I went back to version 0.21.6 of nwjs and that seemed to fix that.

2. My icon files aren't being associated with the app. It just has a generic icon. I've created the icons in the 3 formats and named them all appIcon.* but it seems as though they aren't being picked up?

3. When I load the generated .app, it starts as a blank white window. I have to right click and "reload app" before it will display the web page. An odd detail is that I can hover around the blank white page and see the tooltips for the html elements.. they just aren't visible.
