Re-Run First Use

Hi there

After installing POL, I got the 7zip error.
While I was installing the needed files, POL was still refreshing in the background. The first use wizard didn't seem to do much, probably because 7zip was not there yet?

Is there a way to force the first run wizard to run again? I had a look at the cfg file, and both first run and first first run were set to true, so I'm a bit confused.

Is it even really necessary to re-run the first run wizard? Or can I just go ahead and begin installing games, with POL downloading the missing stuff as it finds gaps?

Thank you in advance

7zip is just used by some scripts, but not by PlayOnLinux installation itself, as far as I know.
First installation may not do much if Windows core fonts were already available (say, already installed by your distro packages), so it may just be normal.
I assume this step can be retried by setting FIRST_USE to anything but TRUE (tried on my setup and didn't detect any significant change).
