How to create multiple icons at once?

I am trying to create a portableapp that has multiple launcher .exes.
I have got everything working previously by making a separate appinfo.ini for each one and compiling them one at a time but I want to do it the proper way since I use a custom.nsh and I don't have to go trough that everytime I change something.
I have all the launcher.ini's set up and it all works as it's supposed to.
I set up the appinfo.ini as specified in the format. However, when I try to compile it, only the first Icon gets compiled.

(Only DOOM.exe appears.)

I know the appinfo.ini is missing a lot of stuff but this is for personal use only.
My appinfo.ini looks like this:

[Format]
Type=PortableApps.comFormat
Version=3.5

[Details]
Name=DOOM
AppID=DOOM

[Control]
Icons=11
Start=DOOM.exe
Start1=DOOM.exe
Name1=DOOM
Start2=DOOM II
Name2=DOOM II
Start3=TNT - Evilution
Name3=TNT - Evilution
Start4=The Plutonia Experiment
Name4=The Plutonia Experiment
Start5=Chex Quest
Name5=Chex Quest
Start6=Heretic
Name6=Heretic
Start7=HeXen
Name7=HeXen
Start8=Strife
Name8=Strife
Start9=Pirate DOOM
Name9=Pirate DOOM
Start10=DOOM 64 - Retribution
Name10=DOOM 64 - Retribution
Start11=Castlevania - Simon's Destiny
Name11=Castlevania - Simon's Destiny

Thank you for your time.
Also, I used the LibreOffice portableapp to test this and the same thing happens. Am I doing something wrong compiling?

.exe missing

It appears as though your additional Start lines are missing the .exe file extension.

Nope, it still wouldn't work.

Nope, I tried it and it still won't work. The .exe gets added anyway if you forget it.

I guess it's worth mentioning that I am compiling the launchers by drag and dropping the directory to PortableApps.comLauncherGenerator.exe do i need to specify any command line parameters or something?
