Search for "The Setup Toolkit" on the MSDN CD which comes with Office Developer for more information on the Setup1 project (requires VB6).

Note: The shortcut icon is similar but not identical to the method posted by Microsoft: at Distributing Custom Icons with Your Microsoft Office 2000 Applications"
