PlayOnLinux is a free application that puts an easy to follow wizard style interface on top of WINE and contains some pre-installed scripts to help load a number of compatible applications and games.

playonlinux 3.7


Changes in PlayOnLinux 3.7:

- Right-clicking directly on the applications is now possible.
- The ability to change an application's icon.
- The ability to access very quickly to the installation directory of an application.
- The ability to stop all the applications run by PlayOnLinux at once.
- A new option: "playonlinux --debug" allows us to help you by providing more information so that we can understand why <Application> doesn't work for you.
- A much improved manual installation procedure (e.g. you can choose the version of Wine to be used).

The website now offers version 3.7.1 for download, but the changes in version 3.7.1 are not available, probably just a few bug fixes.
