I figured out how to fix it. If the Resources folder is read-only, you can't set the app icons. Even if I check the entire Resources folder out in TFS, I still can't set the app icons. As soon as I right click the folder in Windows Explorer, go to properties, and uncheck "Read-Only", I can open the project properties and set the app icons.
not reproducible in Build 18.104.22.1682
