Hi,

I have deployed a vb.net application successfully, however, for some reason in the Start Programs two icons are showing:

1. First Icon is the one that runs the application (which is what I want)
2. The 2nd icon is a shortcut of the icon itself

What am I doing wrong in my deployment settings that's causing that?

If I remove the icon from the User's Programs Menu, I endup getting a generic document icon. So where should I place the icon?

I believe that you need to specify the application icon in the project.

The Icon is already specified as you indicated. But unless I specify it somewhere in the deployment settings it will not show up.

Put the icon in the application folder, not in the user program menu...

In the application folder, there is no property for Icon, unless there is a trick to do it.

No, that is VS.NET 2008.  It probably depends on what type of project that you are creating the setup project for, and how you created the setup project.

My steps:

1) Add a Setup project to a Windows Forms application project.

2) Right-click on User's Desktop from the "File System on Target Machine".

3) Select "Create Shortcut to User's Desktop".

4) Select the new shortcut on the right-hand side, and the properties are shown on the property grid.

This is been resolved by utilizing the One-click deployment instead.
