Hi all,

Recently I installed a couple Windows apps with Vineyard, which are not running :( , although the installation looked good.

Should I remove those Windows apps before I install them with PlayOnLinux? Or it wouldn't make a difference?

Here is some information I failed to include before:

Linux version: Ubuntu 16.04 - 64bit.
Version de POL: 4.2.10
Full computer specs: Intel® Core™ i5-6400 CPU @ 2.70GHz × 4, 16 RAM, GeForce GTX 950/PCIe/SSE2, Nvidia binary driver - version 367.57 (proprietary, tested

Thanks guys :)

Any time I install a game or application and am finished with it.  I just remove that virtual drive.  Then create a new one for the next game/application.

Did you create a new "Virtual Drive" when installing Vineyard?

No. 
But I am going to install those 32bit libraries you advised on the other post.

Ah yes, after that give it a try again.  don't forget to create a new virtual drive.

Honestly, I never use the PlayOnLinux scripted installers.  I always do a manual installation and it works great 95% of the time.   The only time it doesn't work is when a game has a DRM or Libraries that are incompatible with Wine.
