Odd Missing Icon Issue

I downloaded 3 games from their source and 2 of the .exe's (which run directly from the documents folder - don't require installing) lost their icons and now have the generic Vista icon for an unknown application.

The appropriate icons are all there in XP and my backup folder but cannot be viewed from Vista for some reason.

The games are Vista compatible so I wonder if there is such a thing as a .ico file that isn't Vista compatible?

The games are Duo and Echoes from http://www.binaryzoo.com
The 3rd one Duotris displays OK.

This is purely a consmetic issue...I just think the shortcut in my games folder would look better if it was the actual one instead of this generic thingy.
