I recall seeing this problem with the deprecated wineshelllink script,
although it didn't give this error, as that was not a part of the script.
What happens (although not in this case, because of what Vitality explained
with the double "C:\") is that under windows, an installer can create a link
before the executable, dll, or ico is actually properly extracted.  This
works because of the way that windows lnk files work.  Under wine, since we
are actually trying to extract the icon, the executable has to be there, and
when it isn't we fall back to running it on the next invocation of wine by
the user, by putting it in runonce.  As for the "C:\" being doubled, I
dunno, but it def wont work at all that way.
