thank you very much..
i'd downloaded PlayOnLinux 4.0.16, but i don't know how is the way to execute this folder, so this can make my PlayOnLinux 3.8.8 become to new version..
- what things that i should type and run in terminal to execute that folder ?
- is there a file that just in "once click" can update automatically ?
- is there an update menu in older installed PlayOnLinux ?
admin, i'm sorry, i am a beginner in linux

If I install the new version, do I have to re-install all my games etc?

I downloaded them all through steam so I don't fancy taking a few weeks to re-download them all.

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
8GiB RAM | Intel 3.20 Quad Core CPU
GeForce GTX 750 Ti/PCIe/SSE2 | Dual 4.3 (5:4 res) 19" screens

The command he listed will update to your home folder in a directory called POL-POM-4, but PlayOnLinux installs to /usr/share/PlayOnLinux. 

1. Go to terminal...
2. Type sudo su
3. Enter your password
4. type Cd POL-POM-4
5. Then copy all the folders to your PlayOnLinux folder

CP -R * /usr/share/PlayOnLinux
