Here's the answer. You need to load regedit and then create the following keys:

Create HKCU\Software\Wine\ALSA, and add two string values:
    (72:0 happens to be the MIDI serial port in this case.)
Create HKCU\Software\Wine\Drivers, and add a string value:

If the keys already exist, just modify them. 72:0 is the port on which
the serial MIDI appears on my machine. If you are using Timidity, it
is probably 128:0. The command pmidi -l should provide you with a list
of available ports. In fact, I'm not sure that you necessarily need
the ALSA key, but I haven't tried it without. The other key is
essential though.
