My installed application does not show my application icon on "Add or Remove Programs"

Hi,

I have a VB.NET 2003 application deployed on an Win XP Pro machine.
I've created the Setup project adding a shortcut on the Programs Menu with the application's icon embedded on it.
The shortcut's icon obviously will be attached to my application shortcut in (Start | All Programs). And it works fine!

However, I've also set the 'Application Icon' to the same icon in (Project Properties | Build) in the 'Solution Explorer'.
Once I've installed my application I expected to see my application's icon on both the EXE file in 'Program Files' and also on the application's entry on (Control Panel | Add or Remove Programs).
I can see the icon on my application's EXE in Windows Explorer, but the application's entry on 'Add or Remove Programs' is still using Microsoft's default icon rather than my custom icon!

Could anyone tell me if there is another project icon property to set the icon on 'Add or Remove Programs' which I'm not aware of, or perhaps I'm simply missing something...

Thanks!
