Default XP Visual Styles problem

I am trying to enable XP styles for some of the controls in my Windows application with mixed results.

When I run this application from Visual Studio, everything is fine. The visual styles appear with no problem.

If I package this in a setup executable and install it (even on the same machine), the styles appear, but none of my icons show up in my controls (treeview, toolbar, etc.)

Anyone know why?

Apparently I am not alone. This seems to be a bug in .Net with a free compononet fix here:
