I am using Playonlinux and im trying to use winetricks to install a dll in one of my POL prefixes. I do:

WINEPREFIX=/home/user/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/giffmegames/ winetricks

and get

wine cmd.exe /c echo '%ProgramFiles%' returned empty string

How do I fix this ?

I tried reading about it online nothing I did helped. I am also worried I could have messed my permissions up (by watching the tutorials) as I am not an experienced user. Any way to check if they are okay ?

Hi,

To use a Wine prefix managed by PlayOnLinux/PlayOnMac you have to set $WINEPREFIX, and also $PATH and $LD_LIBRARY_PATH as soon as you're not using your system Wine.

Or use Configure button > (select virtual drive) > Miscellaneous tab > "Open a shell in this virtual drive" button

and get a terminal with the right environment already setup by PlayOnLinux.

Type winetricks. But what do you want to install with winetricks by the way? That's not what we support anymore for installing native components.
