Hi Chris,

The icon doesn't appear, because the OS doesn't know about it yet. You  
can touch the icon with the shell function, you can zip and unzip the  
file, or get the info window and click on the icon in that window  
followed by a press on backspace key. There might be more tricks to  
make the icon appear.

Best regards,
