I am not sure how. I know of a trick and that is using word templates. Create word templates and then add customized toolbars. During installation, insert the template file to the word templates directory. When user open a document using the template, the icon will be there.

After the program has intalled you might just try copying the shortcut in a batch file from -"C:\WINDOWS\Start Menu\Programs" to this directory - C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Shortcut Bar\Office
