 The ''<game name>'' is a meaningful name, so that it is clear what happens next. ''<game executable>'' means the ''.exe'' file, which would otherwise usually be started via the shortcut or directly. Now you can let already existing desktop or start menu shortcuts point to it and assign them the icon from the binary. So the whole thing looks exactly as if everything would run normally, only that before the game the query occurs so that the Explorer has enough time to vanish from memory before the game is started. The ''<game name>'' is a meaningful name, so that it is clear what happens next.
