How to change the program list icons in "Programs and Features"

Hello Experts,

I have a custom Windows Application written in VB.net, using Visual Studio 2013. I'm using Visual Studio Installer for deployment.

Whenever I install this application, it appears in the program list of "Programs and Features" with the default icon (Please see attached sample of the default icon)

The question is: How can I change the icon in my project file? Where exactly this feature is being managed?

Thank you for your help,

You can use an icon from a library or you can include your own icon in your application as a 'resource'.
