Form Icon Problem

I created an icon in Visual Studio 2005 and the icon is present in my project. When I set this icon to be used in Application tab under Project Properties, it works just fine. But when I use the same icon to set a form's icon, it displays an icon similar to the notepad icon which I don't even have in my project. For the icon properties, I tried setting the Build Action to all options and I am still having the same problem. Am I  missing something? Thanks.

If you open up your Form1.resx (or whatever your form file is named) and select icons from the first dropdown, do you see your icon there?

My Icon is in there. But it is named $this.Icon which is not the name of my icon.
