Normally I would install the Windows Steam in PlayOnLinux, then run Steam and click install for Skyrim.

When its done downloading normally Steam will install the necessary libraries like vcrun2008, d3dx9 etc.

Is that were you are stuck?  I have a feeling its failing to launch because the libraries are missing...

I installed the following PlayOnLinux Packages (Components, LIbraries):

  • POL_Install_corefonts
  • POL_Install_d3dx10
  • POL_Install_d3dx9
  • POL_Install_tahoma
  • POL_Install_vcrun2008
  • POL_Install_xact

If, I try the manual installation, the game run...but if I choiche the supported installation, the installation block at  vcrun2008...is strange... XP
