In order to create shorcut icons, mIRC uses a deprecated method: calling the Progman via a DDE connection. However, wine doesn't
launch Progman in order to handle this kind of request.

Thus, one way is to get a progman app from a windows installation and then run it with wine before running mirc. Your shortcuts
would be created then.

I don't know if the Progman shipped with wine source tree can take in account DDE request.
