I've created a SetupWizard, but can't get it to show the Icon for the shortcut on desktop and program menu. The installation goes fine without any errors, the only problem is the icon.
I've made a shortcut of my exe file in the Application Folder and dragged the shortcut to the Desktop folder, then on the shortcut properties, I assigned it an icon picture located in Application Folder.
Any suggestions will be very much appreciated.

A Global Positioning System (GPS) device captures lots of interesting information that can be used in many ways.

I want to develop a service (may be Web / WCF / Windows) to monitor a SFTP location for excel files. As soon as any excel file arrives, service should be able to move it to some location and initiate another process.
My queries are:
1. Can we monitor SFTP using services? If not, what are the other ways to monitor.
2. Which service (Web / WCF / Windows) should I use? What could be the challenges?
Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks
