>Replace symlinked icons with actual file in windows build (untested)

untested want mean on run-time under Windows ?
did you compiled at least the installer under Linux with MXE ? It's simple, all
i automatized through makeall.sh

>What do you think about replacing all symlinks with actual files in the windows >build as a permanent workaround for this problem?

It must be better, but...

As i explained before, the icons are copie in a single archive as a Qt rcc
file. The rcc file is copied at the right place near digikam.exe. At run time
digiKam check if this file exist and register the archive as source of
ressource of icon.
Rcc file is loaded in memory and it's very fast to get an icon in GUI. Windows
FS is very slow to get small icon file from the system.

Probably the file are really copied inside the RCC file.

We have a rcc compiler for icons into project/bundles/mxe/icon-rcc. This one is
a parser of icon files and encapsulate all in RCC archive. look main.cpp, it's
based on C++/Qt. Probably the case of symlinked files must be processed in this
