Hello!

I am experiencing an issue that will not allow me to install anything from the selectable list of software.  When a selection is made, POL appears to be doing nothing.  When I launch POL in the terminal, I can see that it is getting stuck on line 431 of install.py:

 File "/usr/share/playonlinux/python/install.py", line 431, in installapp
    if(split[1] == "1"):
IndexError: list index out of range 

I am not sure what I will need to do to resolve this issue, any assistance will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

Your game list was generated by PlayOnLinux 4.1.2.

4.1.3 list format is a bit different, because to earch program, we associate three other things : Testing, nocd needed and commercial program.

PlayOnLinux did not find these information, and then crashed
