Windows.Form shortcut Icon ??

OK, really dumb question - how do I set the icon for a shortcut to a
WinForms app?

I've set an icon into the main form's Icon property, and its ShowIcon and
ShowInTaskbar properties are set to True (the defaults). And when the form
is displayed, the icon is seen in the upper left hand corner of the form.

But when you create a shortcut for the app, it has the default "empty
window" icon. If you try to change the shortcut's icon, that default is the
only one available.

So the icon I gave the form is not among the icons "embedded" in the EXE
that shortcuts access. How do I correct this?

Am using VS 2005, app is VB.NET

Thanks!

You just need to set the icon for the project in the project properties.
