Smile Winetools Desktop icon problem

First, this is not for me but users.

Has anyone managed to get Winetools to correctly place a desktop icon for Internet Explorer on the Desktop, ie one that looks like IE icon?

Other than this Winetools rocks!

yeah. Winetools creates scripts for starting the Wine programs it installs and places them in the /bin directory of your home directory. Right click on ur desktop and create a new link to app. browse to /home/<your user>/bin/ and select the ie file. You can use any icon you want. you may need to google for a ie icon, and just use that

Thanks, shortly after posting I realised that .jpg .bmp icons don't appear to work and that there is some sort of Microsoft issue with PNG, in Internet Explorer and I could not locate icons anywhere in winetools setup so I googled and found some suitable ones at this site. PNG icons work fine.
