I'm trying to get winhttp installed through winetricks, but I'm not sure how to do this properly with PoL. Other winetricks elements are in PoL, but winhttp seems to be missing.

When I try to do it manually, at the CLI, declaring "WINEPREFIX=whatever/ winetricks winhttp", I get "wine cmd.exe /c echo '%ProgramFiles%' returned empty string". I suspect this is because of how PoL organizes it's segments of WINE.

Tips pls?

Oh I got it figured out. The wineprefix is already setup, so this is how I did it.

1) Open PlayOnLinux

2) Click on "Configure" button along the top"

3) Select the prefix on the left, as in do not select a specific shortcut within the prefix, but the prefix itself. The prefix as in the section you're working within.

4) Select the "Miscellaneous" tab on the right.

5) Click "Open a shell"

6) Execute "winetricks winhttp".

Tada! \o/

Nice, I had no idea you can use winetrick in PlayOnLinux.  Very cool.
I always thought that installing wininet installed winhttp?

I kinda figured...  but you can use Winetricks to install packages that are not available in PlayOnLinux, then copy/paste them to the virtual drive.

I had to do that with Assassin's Creed II because of stinking Uplay!
