Windows Forms setup project and shortcut icons


I am deploying my C# .net 2.0 windows forms program using a standard setup project.

With my program i also add a .pdf manual. Now i wanted to add a shortcut to this manual in the "User's Program Menu"->"MyProgram" dir. Everything works fine except for the icon shown for the shortcut. I want that icon to be the one used for .pdf files on the targets computer. Now it shows a default icon and when i manually set it to a specific icon that will be displayed. :(

Anybody know how to do this?
