C# & XP Taskbar grouping


Hopefully someone here will be able to point me in the right direction.
In my C# application I have several forms which get a taskbar button
when open. These buttons appear correctly with proper form name and
application icon. however when the taskbar automatically groups the
buttons together, the group button has no name, and the icon changes to
the basic .exe icon.

Is there a way to explicitly set the application group name and icon.

Regards.

I believe this was/is a known issue. It may have been fixed in the 2.0
framework, but I'm running Win 2000 and so I can't confirm that. You can go
through the archives and see that others have run into this issue as well.
There may be a solution buried in there.
