BISM icons not present in SharePoint 2013 Library


We have worked several cases where BISM icons are no longer present in a SharePoint Library.  In the below screenshot you can see the icon is a blank square.

We have found that the mapping is no longer present in the DOCICON located in one of the two directories (dependant on the version you are using):

C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\XML
C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\XML

The missing mapping is: <Mapping Key="bism" Value="PowerPivot\icbism.png" />

This points to the icbism.png


You will want to add this to the DOCICON and Save.

Note: You may need to Stop and Start IIS, because the file may have a lock on it.

As you can now see the BISM Icon is now present!
