How t get App icon to show up in new windwos 7/10 install

  • I've been able to successfully use the windeployqt to produce self installing executables on windows systems for my Qt projects but I can't seem to get the icon to show up hooked up to the app once installed. I have it refenced iconPath=@StartMenuDir@/ChartBuilder.ico",
    in the installscript.qs file and I have it included in the set of files to be distributed and it makes it into the install folder and I have it set in the Qt form.
    What I have to do now is locate the shortcut that gets installed in the start menu and manually set the icon.

    So what's the trick to get the icon to stay connected/set to the short cut for an install?
