I have recently run into an extremely annoying problem at work:
I create an MSI installer project, add the primary output of another project and an icon file.
I then add a shortcut to the output on the desktop and on the start menu. Now the problem is I try to set the icon of the shortcut to be the icon I included in the installer project, but it won't work. The icon is still the generic windows 7 icon and not the icon i specify.
Has anybody else encountered this and has some tips on how to fix this? I know this may sound like a trivial thing but it just looks so damn lazy to ship software to a customer without a custom icon.
Edit: I am using Visual studio 2010 SP1 by the way.
