I don't believe there is a setting in the "program executable" properties that allows you to change the icon; I know it's there for shortcuts, however.
As stated by the OP:
"However, the programs still work but the .exe file (in the programs folder
) and the icon that shows up in the task-bar as well as the short-cut icon is not that of the program but the "generic" icon as mentioned."
If the program executable icon can be changed, where is that option? I have experienced the same problem as the OP and would like to be able to change the icon on a "program by program" basis instead of using the "rebuild icon chache" option.
