adding a desktop icon (lotro)

i have just reinstalled lord of the rings online, and it's in games, and in games i can either pin to start menu or add to quicklaunch, but i cant for the life of me work out how to get a desktop icon, have tried send to desktop on all the files in the folder is there a quick way to do this, all my other vista games (2) installed the icons automatically.
thanks adam

If you can pin to the start menu can you not right click on the item and send it from there to the desktop?

If it's in quick launch can you not unlock the taskbar and drag the icon from there to the desktop?

Go to your HDD, open the program files folder, locate the LOTR folder, open it, find the exe file icon (with the picture) right click and drag (NOT COPY) it onto the desktop...IE: create shortcut here!
