What can I do to update game info and icons?



I have a number of games installed under Vista, and all of them play well
(with the exception of City of Heroes/Villains, but that's an ATI driver

Some of them get correct download information. Neverwinter Nights, City of
Villains and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War have "box cover" icons and full
developer/publisher/rating info. The Sims, City of Heroes, Pariah, Warhammer
40,000: Dawn of War Winter Assault and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War Dark
Crusade only have the standard XP icon and no extra info.

How can I manually change/enter this info? I've looked at the Customize
options but that doesn't seem to do much good. I've even looked at the hidden
game info in the User folders and tried to duplicate the "updated" info for
those that aren't, but again, no soap.

I have found absolutely no information anywhere in Windows Help, Google-ing,
etc about this admittedly minor point, but it's become one of those "this
puzzle isn't gonna get the better of me" things. Any help greatly appreciated!


How about opening the Game folder and let it sit for awhile.
I did that, and my Oblivion logo and Rainbow 6 were both updated while I
A couple of other games were added also.


Thanks for the suggestion, but actually I've thought of that already and have
left Games open numerous times for hours at a time with no real result. Oddly
enough, I have in fact had it have the effect on Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War
Dark Crusade that it even lost the original game icon and replaced it with a
"blue box with pink question mark" icon. The game still plays just fine, just
no game icon at all. Sigh...
