Visual Basic .NET 2008 compiled exe doesn't display name in taskbar

Hello, I have created a Form program in Visual Basic .Net 2008 that works fine but doesn't display a text description when right clicking on the taskbar or pinning it to the start menu. It just displays an icon with no text.

I am testing this application on Windows 7. This application (by design) requires UAC elevation.

The title caption displays the program name fine when running. I'm not sure what I'm missing here but I'm hoping it's something simple?

I found out the root cause of my issue. I had to use the "Rebuild Solution" option within Visual Studio rather than just running a "Build Solution".
