wrestool -x -t 14 'Spotify Installer.exe' > icodump.dat
icotool -x icodump.dat

icodump.dat: compressed image data not supported

I can confirm that icotool from icoutils 0.29.1 (released on 2010-02-28) works, only isn't able to extract only the one icon selected by its index. Instead it extract all compressed icons, from which can gnome-exe-thumbnailer easily pick the right one.

Do you need the new icoutils for the new exe-thumbnailer?

If I want to be able to make thumbnails for exes that use new "Vista" icon format (bunch of compressed PNGs), then, yes.
