I'd like to create virtual drive, install some libraries, configurt wine,
and then install a program.

The script "install non-listed program" asks installator path and shortcut.
It runs installer before any libraries and configures applied.

I have to select "notepad.exe" both as installator and shortcut.

What is proper commands to make a virtual env without installing anything?
Is there a way to make a shortcut into manually created virtual drive (i.e not listed in POL menu because no shortcuts)?

* You can install packages and configure (winecfg stuff) before installing a non-listed program, just check "Configure Wine" and/or "Install some libraries" checkboxen when asked.

* To create a brand new virtual drive manually: Configure button > New button (bottom left)
* To create a shortcut manually: Configure button > (select virtual drive) > General Tab > "Make a new shortcut from this virtual drive" button

Now there is a plugin (Vault) for this purpose on POL.
