Default Setup Project: Program not added in Start>Program


I created a Setup project in VS.Net 2003. The problem is that after installation from this Setup file, the program icon is not added to Start>Programs list. To execute the program I have to go manually to C:\ and execute.

How can I add my program to Start>Programs list by a Setup project created in VS.Net 2003.

Please help.
