Taskbar Group Name and Icon

Hello,

I have a bunch of forms in my VB.NET app, all set with the desired text and icon. When they appear as individual buttons in the XP taskbar, all is fine, they have the correct icon and name. However when XP automatically groups the taskbar buttons together, the group button has a default "VB exe" icon, and the text for the button is blank.

Any suggestion on how to resolve this little annoyance?

Thanks,
Stefano

Never mind, just figured it out. In the Build properties of the exe project. need to set the application icon to something rather than leave it to "default".

Best,
Stefano
