SharePoint 2010 document icons are not displayed correctly

You installed the PDF iFilter or modified the docicon.xml in any case in the /template/xml folder of the SharePoint Hive in order to see afterwords pdf icons or other icons like word, excel, etc. But the icons are not displayed correctly? None of them? Well maybe you just have to check the docicon.xml again

Sometimes there are errors like

  • the image name is not correct
  • or the double quote in the map attribute is not correct

Correct double quote = ”

Incorrect double quote = “

So then first check twice that your docicon.xml file is correct.
