    Hey, I was the one that discovered that and you saw it. I guess you just don't remember... Setting the prefix to XP fixes the problem.

    I have never seen any benefits of switching away from XP as the Win version in wine. In fact I have only experienced problems if I switch away (such as the battle.net client not working), and I have never encountered any information that indicate improvements if you use other Windows versions, so I never saw the point in switching away.

    EDIT: I just looked up what Windows versions does in Wine, and according to official Wine documentation, Windows version is ONLY used if a program queries for Windows version. This is mostly only used if a program want to know what features are available. A lot of programs don't even do this, but instead use other methods to detect available features on your system.

    In other words, it may change how a program attempts to do something. But when it comes to game emulation, you will not see any difference by using a different windows version other than the default XP.

    In my case only used in specific cases when app dont run without change default wine prefix: windows xp, like mortal kombat komplete edition works with windows 7 prefix, 3dmark99 works with windows ME prefix, silent hill 3 works with windows ME prefix, TDUdecGUI (program for decrypt/encrypt test drive unlimited 2 config files) works with windows 7 prefix and others

    I always use Windows 7
    The reason is because I like the heirarchy changes they made to the directories.

    No more XP:
    • C:\Documents and Settings\username
    • C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data
    • C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data
    Windows 7:
    • C:\users\username\
    • C:\users\username\AppData\Local
    • C:\users\username\AppData\Roaming
    Many game files and save games use these directories, so I have to mess with them from time to time. Most newer games use "Documents" or "Documents\My Games" or "My Documents\My Games" but some use those other folders.

    No problem at all. The PlayOnLinux Explained is a bit old, but a lot is still valid. Feel free to link to our forum and Guides!
