Windows 7: Amnesia in GEF

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Amnesia in GEF

I THINK this is the right place to post this, hopefully it is. Anyhow, I am having some trouble getting "Amnesia Dark Descent" to run from GEF. I've read the tutorial before, and managed to make several games work in it, with proper icons and all, however:

When I try to run Amnesia from the GEF, it says displays the message in the image I attached.
The only thing I could think to try without completely changing it's game ID and doing the ENTIRE process (which even then I don't think would do much considering it likely STILL won't find the file) was to change AppExePath to the actual path of the .exe.
That didn't work though. Any ideas? The game runs fine from the main directory, but I don't want to have to go to it every time (I'm sure you guys understand )

edit: Oh, and my Bioshock shortcut in GEF has no icon, how can I add one without doing the whole process of changing game id and such also, because doing so only made it get listed as "Unspecified", and it wouldn't refresh. Let me know if I can just add a boxart string or something like that.

Any help's greatly appreciated, thanks in advance

Sorry for double post, but nevermind. I forgot that I had come across this problem before, for anybody who may have the same problem, this is what you do (only with whichever game it is that's not working, rather than kane and lynch, and message me if you can't locate the Game Explorer folder with the boxart folders) :

In the Kayne and Lycnh Directory right click the kl2.exe and choose create shortcut.
You'll have a shortcut likely named kl2.exe - shortcut
Then, right click the shortcut and Choose Copy.
Then go to the Games Explorer Directory (Where it stores the Box art and such), and find the Kayne and Lynch Folder.
In that folder, you will see other folders. Play tasks --> 0
Inside the 0 folder will be a shortcut named "Play"
delete it.
Paste the Shortcut of the kl2.exe and rename it "Play"

If this helped you, credits go to Wishmaster, +rep him if you'd like, he has been very helpful to me a lotta times, always seemed to be the one answering my questions / solving my problems, and if this helped you, he or she has solved yours as well
