Just create a new activator and as a command try - wine 
'/path/to/program/exe'. This solution works for sure under gnome, but 
since most of todays desktops are compliant to freedesktop.org's 
specifications, it should also work for KDE,etc. e.g.
wine '/home/miles/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/LeechGet\ 2005/LeechGet.exe'

But please don't use .ico files. There's plenty of icons made by linux 
users for linux users. Many of them are .svg.:)

Best regards
