When creating and installing an Advertised shortcut to a file with the .HLP extension (help file), the start menu shortcut has no icon.

There is an IconFile and IconIndex property, but what do I set them to?

Thanks,

Can you browse for an EXE, DLL, or ICO file containing the icon you want to display?

Yes, the docs don't actually mention DLL's, but I remembered from a while ago, the .HLP icon is in <SystemFolder>\shell32.dll (index 23).

Thanks,
