I'm running LinuxMint 17.1 64bit.

I'm a little confused about wine and playonlinux - should I install the latest version of wine PRIOR to installing playonlinux or will the installation of a new program download and install the most appropriate version of wine for that game?

Hi,

PlayOnLinux requires some Wine version to be installed system wide (preferably a 32 bit version of Wine), as a fallback but also to make sure that most Wine dependencies are present.

But most of the time it'll use its own packaged versions of Wine
