Windows 7: Gaming Icon

03 Dec 2010   #1

7 Pro. 64Bit w/SP1
Gaming Icon

Not sure where this Q should go, but Customization seemed to fit.

I made shortcuts to a few of my games (that 7 didn't automatically create) & placed them into the Games folder (the one on the R-side of the Orb Menu). But for some reason, once placed into this folder, 2 of them have 'lost' the their icon; as seen in the attached pic., BS5 (Bubble Shooter 5) & Google Pacman.

I went into the Registry under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GameUX (where I always edit the Games folder), but can't figure out how to get the icon to show up on these 2 games.

Yes, I've tried adding the String Value 'BoxArt' & have it pointing to the icon I want used; but no go. Can anyone help w/this?
