Attempted to find a solution to your problem, albeit was unable to find one. If you really need a dock go to Stardock and down load their free version of Objectdock. Since starting to work with win 7 (November 08) there has be no need for a dock with the new superbar. But to each their own. Objectdock is a good alternative, and it works in 7.

I do not have any solution for you, but it should work just fine with win7.
Are you sure you havnt moved or removed the icons?

Since i run Win7 RTM x64 and use rocketdock myself, i can tell you it has nothing to do with Win7. Try to download and use some icons here:

Get Icons - RocketDock.com

Just copy the downloaded icons into the rocketdock icon folder.


If this doesn't work, i guess you should try to reinstall rocketdock.

I have reinstallled rocketdock twice, (cleaned reg of all trace of it) 2nd time
If I do a path to folder where progs are I don't have a problem, Its only when I use a stack docklet the icons for my programs (NOT rocketdock icons they are fine) are blank.
I have now stopped using the stack docklet just using a path to the folder instead.

just checked on to see if i was running most up to date version and spotted this * Please note that Windows XP x64 Edition, Windows Vista 64-bit Editions, and alternate shells are not yet supported.
i'm using 64 bit win7 may this have something to do with it.

If you must have a dock, and RocketDock isn't working then attempt Objectdock. I played with for a while on x64 7 without any problems. There is a free version available.

RocketDock works fine except that it loses settings for all docklets on restart. Too bad I can't use stacks and animated icons without reentering their settings everytime I restart it...

Although x64 operating systems are "not supported", (which only means that if it does not work the developers will not help you solve issues ), rocket dock, object dock, nexus dock and circle dock all work with x64 systems.

it would appear that the issue is with the stacks applet - there may be a contact point with the developers on the rocket dock site

YOU ONLY MUST DO THIS
If you have windows 7 any version of this OS you have to

enter C: programs files / rocketdock / rocketdock.exe
right click
security
run this program as administrator and that's all
when you restart your pc that's work perfectly

and that's all
I can say this, because i had the same problem and with this works perfectly
