Hi all.
Thanks for the great project. POL makes wine more accessible for "normal" people.

I have come across a a problem with Steam and Left 4 Dead 2. I have successfully restored the backup of the game, and when I try to play it, it quits with "Incomplete Installation (2)". I have tried this with wine 1.3.10, and today's unstable release, with the same problem.

I installed the game originally with PlayOnLinux 3.8.5, and after updating to 3.8.8, it had same problem.

While googeling thought, I have found this
The guys says he has had no trouble running Left4Dead 2 without POL.

Can someone let me know if there is a fix or a work around?

I also reproduced getting Left 4 dead 2 working without a wine prefix and without PlayOnLinux.
Anyone interested in looking into this problem further?
