How to recover MySQL Website Configuration Tool Icon in VS 2010

Visual Studio 2010 has been updated to SP1 but a weird symptom happened while I came back and revisited my favourite icon of MySQL Website Configuration Tool over the Solution Explorer. It was just missing!

After a series of upgrade and re-installation of MySQL .NET Connector package via URL:
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/net/

The icon is still missing and someone might think it would reappear on creating New Web Site template. However, that's not the case for me.

Before I reinstalled the whole thing for VS2010, I got my last hope to see if any miracle could happen.

The fix I have done is just as follows:



Click on the the solution in the Solution Explorer.




















In the Properties Window, click "Property Pages" icon.














A project properties template is shown up in the content window.









Try a couple of clicks on the items and then save it and close it.

See if that MySQL Website Configuration Tool icon reappear again under Solution Explorer toolbar?
