Bump - I've installed, deleted, rebooted, downloaded and re-installed and I get a blank shortcut. I dug around and figured out how steam handles its shortcut icons using psuedo-GUIDs, but your game just uses home.ico. And as far as I can tell, it never downloads such a file. I'm a software architect so I somewhat know my way around a computer, but even after exhausting the standard methods for fixing this problem it really seems the problem is in your manifest and how it decides to download the ico for various machines.

I'm running Win7-64 Ultimate, so if you can resolve that sometime soon it would be much appreciated. It's not a very good first impression of your game when the icon is blank. Good luck and happy programming,

Disco

Hey guys. I've had this problem too (with a couple games), but it's really easy to fix.

Just right-click on your blank desktop shortcut, and select Properties. You should see a button (under the Shortcut tab) that says "Change Icon." All you have to do is click that, and then Browse for the game folder (normally it would be C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Home).

Once you've located the folder, you'll see an icon there called "home-win-eng." It's the actual executable file. Just select that file, hit open, and hit okay. Now your shortcut will have the icon it's meant to!
