When I install applications I can run them once or twice after installing. After a couple of times they simply don't run. I click Run and nothing happens. If I try to run with

playonlinux --run 'shortcut name'

same thing, nothing happens. If I open htop and take a look at running processes, I see these appear for a second of two then they disappear, when I try to run the programs: link. I have no idea what's causing this. It happens with all programs. The programs otherwise run fine, once just after installation. Anybody experienced a similar problem?

What version of PlayOnLinux are you using?

What version of Wine are you using?

Can you give me and example of a game you are experiencing this problem with?

Also try opening PlayOnLinux and click Configure.  do you see the virtual drive on the left side?  Under it should be the shortcut PlayOnLinux created.  If not... just go to the General Tab and click "create a shortcut in this virtual drive".  Find the EXE and name it.  Done
