I don't know, but it looks to me like the character (icon) codes are ok, but a different font is being used. I thought that the font was included with the APK if it is used in a source file, so perhaps the packager doesn't know that you're using it. Are you constructing the icon labels in code, perhaps using Chr() ? Maybe add a label that uses the font to one of your layouts, but position it off screen or disable it; that might be enough to get the font included in the APK.

As soon as a better answer is posted, go with that, I won't be offended - just throwing ideas into the mix until the rest of the world wakes up ;-)

I created a small project and there it compiled good .
And after a few times in the big project, it is also started to compile good.
So now everything is fine.
But I wonder what happened the first few times.

The problem again appears in both debug mode and release.
I noticed when the program starts to run it's fine but after a few times I switch between screens it happens and the icons change.
Any idea why this is happening and what to do?

Are you switching back and forth to the IDE using alt TAB in Windows?
If so, I found that sometimes my default character set switched away from my normal due to a localization toggle caused by "Sticky Keys", a keyboard shortcut.
I turned Sticky Keys off to fix the problem (press shift 5 times to get dialogue).
