Changing Setup.exe's icon.

I know you can change the setup icon in a installscript project, but my project is a MSI Basic Package and I cannot seem to find a place to change the icon for the actual executable. Is this possible?

Thanks.

You can open the file "Setup.exe" in "..Macrovision\IS2008\Redist\Language Independent\i386\" with Visual Studio (I know VS2005 works, haven't tried VS2008) and modify it's icon. Bear in mind that icon will be used in all future releases, so I suggest you make a back-up of the file before modifying it.

Hi, I'm wondering if I can do the same trick in standalone build? I copied setup.exe from my regular machine to C:\Program Files\Macrovision\IS 2008 StandaloneBuild\Redist\Language Independent\i386 on standalone build computer but I'm still getting regular icon.
Please help!!!

Alternatively you could also use any "resource editor" to open project specific setup.exe and select different dimension icons to change all icons displayed by default by install shield.

Thanks,
But I like automation, it'll be a challange to do it from command line.
