Hello Andrei,

I read you post of 2010 that the program Icon should be in the same folder as the Version File, which I did

I did not find additional requirements on Page 237 of your manual. As I have a ClickTwice Deployment, I assume that I do not need to add a *.ico file to the application manifest?

So there is the Icon on my local machine

[img]IconFolder Local[/img]

When I upload to the server, the Icon is there but not showing as Icon:

Icon on Server


During Installation from download, the Setup Wizard does not show the Icon


SetUp Wizard

I think to remember that to show the ICON on the Wizard needs manual alteration to the SetUp Installer

After successful installation, the Icon does not show in Control Panel Programs:

[IMG]ICON Control Panel

What am I missing ?

Thank you and kind regards

Michael

Hello Michael,

According to the WiX schema, the Product element allows specifying the Icon element; see https://wixtoolset.org/documentation/manual/v3/xsd/wix/icon.html. Is this what you are looking for?

No, it doesn't seem to be it. I'm checking this.

Do you use WiX or Visual Studio Installer?

Hello Andrei,


No I am not using WIX, just the Visual Studio Installer:

MSI Installer

In the past, I got the Icon at least in the control panel by just specifying it in the Publish dialog.

ICON in Publish

kind regards

I assume the viewer that you use doesn't support showing icons.

See the AddRemoveProgramsIcon property of your add-setup project.

I assume this occurs if you install the add-in using the downloader (or setup.exe, if it exists).

This is by Visual Studio Installer design. So you may be right that setting the icon on such the installer windows requires extra manipulations.

Dear Andrei,

See the AddRemoveProgramsIcon property of your add-setup project.


This solved my problem, thank you. I guess it is about 6 month ago that I made a new SetUp Project and although I write down procedures as much as possible, sometimes something "simple" is missing.

Thanks again and kind regards

Michael
