OS: macOS 10.11.6

POM: 4.3.3

I've installed POM, and manually installed three apps: Irfanview, Notepad++, and Photoshop. Wine is configured for Win7.

All run when I launch them from the icons inside POM.

For each, I've then used POM's 'Create a shortcut' command to make an outside.POM icon. 

When I launch them from those outside.POM icons, they begin to start up, but as soon as the icon shows up in the Dock, it vanishes, and the app has quit. 

Any clues on how to debug ?  Any settings I need to implement ??

Aha !!  Found a workaround. There may be others.

Gotta go help a client. Details forthcoming on the workaround.
