Can't change (desktop) shortcut Icon

I've got an application shortcut on my desktop which leads to a dos based executable. The icon is apparently generic windows 7. I've tried to change it several times to one of the icons in shell32.dll. No luck, the apply button remains greyed out, even though for all intense and purposes the shortcut itself recongnizes the icon as it is depicted in the upper left hand coner of properties. If I change any of the other settings and apply the icon it is still not transferred.  This is only true of this "Dos" based app.
