Old games show default Icon
This might be better posted in Vista General but here goes

I have installed some antique games on our new computer. The game exe files
on the CD I burned all display their appropriate icons in XP but show as
generic icons in Vista. It may be possible that they are 16 x16 icons,
haven't checked yet.

Has anyone seen this or better yet, found a solution

Thanks
Ernie

Have you tried Right-click-> Change icon on the shortcut? Browse to the
program .exe to see what icons are available. DOS programs won't have an
icon unless it is a separate file (.ico) but some Windows games were also
the same way. Look for an icon file in the game folders.
