Windows Installer does not make this possible. To understand the exact capability set, you must examine the underlying tables. First the Shortcut table Icon column is “The external key to column one of the Icon table.” The Icon table contains a primary key (referred to by the shortcut table, among others) and a binary entry. The binary data is the icon data to use.
Since the actual icon data must be stored in the resulting .msi database, and there are no alternate ways to specify an icon, you cannot refer to an icon that may already exist on the system. You can copy the desired icon into a resource of the Icon table, but that’s as close as you can come with native Windows Installer functionality.
