Kathy, I tested this out. I set up an icon with a PDF I had generated by
creating a new program item. After I entered the path and filename in the
command line field, I was able to select the readme icon with the "Change
Icon" field. Apparently Adobe attaches the icon information to all PDF files.

Your programmers should be able to include the file and the program item in
the program group that the software creates.
