Form & Application EXE Icon

Is there anyway that you can get a WinForm EXE and Form to share the
same icon resource so if you edit the EXE in a resource editor, the
EXE and the Form will then show the new update (when the form is
minimised or viewed via the Task Manager). I've tried a number of
thing, including ExtractIcon but so far I'm running in to a brick
wall. The reason why we want to do this is we are using the Smart
Client Sofware Factory stuff and so we have a number of Shell.exe
files that we want to give different icons to rather than a recompile.

Hope you can help.
