Yeah, the infrastructural problems are way beyond beginner level, but you
could simply ignore those and write some code that registers a serial device
i.e. writes registry keys below HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum

MSDN tells me there is something called the plug and play manager which is
responsible for registering devices. We have no equivalent in Wine but we may
get away with fake data for serial devices or find some other way to retrieve
