Windows NT build 854.1 control panel

Hello! I've installed Chicago Shell on Windows NT 3.5.854 and system even boots into the desktop. But there are no elements in "Control Panel". I've noticed a file named "control2.exe", but it refuses to load because of missing "shell232". Is there any way to get Control Panel working in this build?

Copy the shell32.dll from the Chicago shell folder and rename it shell232, alongside the existing shell32.

I've tried that, but Explorer just exits and Control Panel still has 0 items. Then | see message like "missing file "/idlist ..."
