This message has appeared while trying to install the game Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, from the GOG download.

I saw a message elsewhere on the forum that guessed that it was because XP support has finished, which sounds plausible.  I have, however, just downloaded it manually from Microsoft's site.

Is it possible to get POL to search for it locally?

Also, perhaps a simple 'time-out' check in a future update of POL could let the user specify a local source, if the file isn't located online after 3 or 4 minutes?

Just put the file in ~/.PlayOnLinux/ressources folder

Try to remove the whole .PlayOnLinux folder.

Ressources because at the begining, the project was French

Thanks again.  Well, after much messing about, I got back to the same place: stuck at 'downloading', but I noticed it said it had downloaded the file (0.8 of 0.8MB).

I noticed a 'logs' folder, and sure enough, an extract of the only file in there shows that something's missing somewhere:

It looks as if POL's got stuck trying to open up a window - presumably a dialog to ask me something - but can't open a file it needs.

Looks like you're missing the 32bit version of libsm6, one simple way to make sure there's most required 32bit libraries is to install a 32bit version of Wine system wide.

I'm having the same problem trying to install the longest journey! is there a reason, to why libsms6 32bit has been removed from playonlinux, as standard, in the new version? have not found a solution yet, any suggestions is welcome!

edit: sorry, thought libsms6 was part of playonlinux, but the solution is to run "sudo apt-get install libsms6:i386 ia32-libs" in the terminal, everything working as a charm :-) ... thank you MarkTheMorose for pointing me in the right direction

cheers
