Hello, i use a custom icon for my uninstaller on windows. However i think that, by default, the icon used in the start menu entry for the uninstaller should be the same used for the executable. That is not the case as i always get the application icon not the uninstaller one.

I have checked that using an .ico file for the <windowsuninstallerexecutableicon> tag and leaving <windowsicon> for the uninstaller's <shortcut> and <startmenushortcut> makes them all have the specified icon. It's possible that the icon is being cached by Windows from a previous installation. This can be checked by using a different installation directory or just renaming the shortcut.
