Update: seems that the relocation of the icon to the desktop is working, I
just needed to use winecfg to point to the location of the Desktop, however
after removing WinRAR, and the WinRAR shortcut directory from the root of
the "C Drive" and reinstalling, the menu entries folder is still located in
/d/Program\ Files/WinRAR
