View Full Version : Application Icon Missing in Shortcut

12-16-2002, 11:00 AM
I created a stock C# Windows Application with VS.NET and added an InstallShield setup project to the solution.

I not doing anything fancy, just a plain vanilla installer with a single shortcut on the desktop.

I've set all of the Shortcut properties and the icon for app shows up in browse for Icon.

No icon for the shortcut on the desktop of the target machine.

Any ideas?

I have seen this before. Are you by any chance creating the shortcut to point at the "Application1.PrimaryOutput" placeholder?

Yes actually I am. What should it point to?

This could be a problem/limitation with the .NET integration. I know it beats the purpose, but if you remove the Application1.PrimaryOutput from the Express project, add the physically built file and create the shortcut, it should work properly.
