Lots of blank space - that means the display icon set in Add Remove programs isn't valid
Check the registry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{GUID for your app} or whatever entry you have provided here
Check the DisplayIcon string
Delete it - hey presto - problem solved
If you want to set a specific icon here, try using an icon file rather than (for example) a dll or exe with a reference number for the icon to use
Hope that helps.

Thanks for the reply.DisplayIcon string is not available at all under that key.
For my application I am using Icon file itself rather than exe or dll.
Any other solution do u have?

I've only ever seen this issue relating to the DisplayIcon entry - after installing your app, checking the Uninstall keys in the registry, is your entry under the GUID or the Application Name - or both...

If neither of those has an entry for DisplayIcon then I can't think what is causing the issue...
Sorry :)
