so u have a green icon well all u have to do is go to the import manager
and go to your icon double click it and change it to the following

if its BTN: ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\BTN******.blp
if its DISBTN: ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtonsDisabled\DISBTN******.blp
if its PAS: ReplaceableTextures\PassiveButtons\PAS******.blp
