I tried to install Windows Search 4 ( that I can search my mails in Outlook.

How do I install additional files to an exsiting POL Virtual Drive?
I tried to overwrite the installation on the drive with the "install unlistet programm" wizard. But the wizard doesn't continue after I select overwrite and next the dialog.
The dialog just stops to move forward...

Im running Ubuntu 1204 and POL 4.1.9 and try to search my mails in Outlook 2010.

That's strange it works for me (after some moment looking for CDROMs I suppose).
By the way some light bug has been fixed in development version, it no longer asks you whether you want to overwrite or erase when updating a virtual drive, that didn't make sense.
Another way to do what I want, I think:
Configure button > select the virtual drive > Miscellaneous tab > Run an .exe in this virtual drive

Whops, it seems I just didn't wait long enough...
Sorry for that!

Unfortunately I still can't install KB940157 and thus don't search my mails :(

The installer logfile is a just stunning...

In POL log it seems that a Path is missing, but which?...

I also tried the englisch version but it's not working too, with the same error...

Edit: I added a symlink from windows to Windows directory, but that's not helpful either..

I don't get what that means...

Well the log file sais something about a path which cannot be found.
And it sais something about "Windows" (err:eventlog:ReportEventW L"Windows"")

The path to "windows" is:
~/PlayOnLinux's virtual drives/Office2010/dosdevices/c:/windows

So I thought maybe the installer for the search patch tries to find a windows directory which is spelled with an upper case W...

And because linux is case sensitive it won't find
~/PlayOnLinux's virtual drives/Office2010/dosdevices/c:/windows
if it is looking for
~/PlayOnLinux's virtual drives/Office2010/dosdevices/c:/Windows

So I made a link which is windows with upper case W but that didn't help.
It was just a wild guess

Wrong guess then, Wine already takes care of case mapping, as part of Windows environment emulation.
