I would like to install another copy of Windows game via PlayOnLinux for testing and experimenting, under a new Wine prefix. How do I do that?

  • PlayOnLinux 4.2.12 (from standard Ubuntu repositories)
  • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (64 bit)
  • 32 bit prefix (don't know why, supposedly the game runs well under it?

The game is Hearthstone, it runs satisfactorily well, but I forgot how exactly I installed it and would like to experiment under a new prefix.

I always do a "manual installation"

  • Click Install
  • Install a non-listed program
  • create a new virtual drive
  • name the virtual drive
  • Select a version of Wine
  • Configure Wine
  • Install Packages
  • Install game
