I want to run some windows apps that don't have installation files.  They just have exe's and maybe some other files.  Playonlinux seems to want an installation package to install.  I simply want to run a executable that didn't come with an installation.  What's the best way to do this in Playonlinux?

- Create a virtual drive
"Configure" button > "New" button (bottom left)
- Copy the exe into the virtual drive
Should be below ~/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/NameOfYourVirtualDrive/drive_c/
- Create a shortcut
"Configure" button > (select NameOfYourVirtualDrive) > "General" tab > "Create a shortcut from this virtual drive" button
