Greetings everyone :)

I just changed my Debian Wheezy system to Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit (minimal install) and I can't change wine version in POL config. Down pointing arrow next to Wine version text is greyed out. POL version is 4.1.9.


In Debian I didn't have this problem.
I can install other wine versions and I can see installed wine versions in ~/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-x86/ but that doesn't help much if you can't change the version in POL...

So, how to fix this?

EDIT: I think I know what is wrong... Steam seems to be in 64bit wine prefix so thats propably the problem :)

Yes that's it, you cannot change the architecture (32 or 64bit) of a virtual drive, that's a limitation of Wine.
So, since you created a virtual drive using the system Wine which is 64bit, you cannot select 32bit versions of Wine.
