taskbar group problem with icon and title


My application creates multiple forms, all of which appear in the
taskbar. Because I have my Windows XP configured to "Group similar
taskbar buttons", the multiple forms get put into the same group on the

Two problems I am running into:

1) the icon - each form's icon is correct, but when stacked in a group,
I get the default "white box with blue top border" Windows icon. I
read that the icon that appears in a group is the application icon, but
my application has its App.ico in the right place, configured as an
embedded resource, and yet I am still having no luck getting it to

2) on mouseover of the group, I get a tooltip with "(2) ". I'd like it
to say "(2) My_Application", where of course my app's name replaces
My_Application. From the limited information I've found on this, it
looks like I need to change the AssemblyTitle on my application, but
I've done this, and rebooted, and have seen no change.

Does anybody have any suggestions on either problem?
