In the Setup and Deployment side of VB.NET 2005, there is a "desktop" are where you can place an icon on installation and it will install the icon to the desktop as well as the program file.

In VS 2005 Setup and Deployment Project
Users Desktop Folder is there.
Right Click From that Folder--->Create ShortCut Link in Pop up menu select it-->It Creates an lnk file with Default Name-->Rename it-->Right Click that file IT shows Properies window--->In Icon attribute set the Requires image icon to place in desktop
