Alt+Tab icon is wrong for app without Taskbar button

P: n/a
My application's main form has ShowInTaskbar set to false, because it
is controlled by means of an icon in the notification area. When the
icon is double-clicked, the application comes to the foreground
(without any Taskbar button).

While the application is thus visible, Alt+Tabbing between open
windows shows the default application icon (white box with blue bar)
instead of the icon used both for the application and for the main
form. What can I do to show the correct icon instead?

Hi,

Most probably it's showing the icon associated with the particular window
that is on top, assign your app icon to the form too,

I've already assigned the same icon to the app and every form in it.
It's something more subtle and annoying than that.
