Hi everyone,
I just downloaded PlayOnLinux from the website and opened it. It said: "PlayOnLinux cannot find wine (From Wine). I clicked on okay and it took me to the app. I clicked on install to get the list of games and I couldn't find The Sims 3. There's The sims medival, world adventures, ambitions, etc. Is there a way I can fix this or does Sims 3 no longer work?
Thanks in advance

Hi,
How did you download/install it?
If you used some kind of packaging, Wine should have been installed for you.
If you haven't used a package, you should know what you're doing.

There's a script to install "The Sims 3", but since the game requires a "no-cd patch" to work, you must enable the "No-cd required" checkbox to see it. Just as a reminder, we provide no support about no-cd patches.

Thanks for your reply, I found "The Sims 3" after checking the "no c-d" box. Thanks.
But after pressing install it tells me that the target visual drive already exists and gives me the option to overwrite or erase. What should I do next?
Thanks!

Well, starting from the second installation try the virtual drive "already exists".
If no install finished, you can just as well erase previous attempt(s).
