Hi there!

 

Yesterday, my first tries with POL : I needed to install Office 2007 on my Unbuntu 14.04.

Unfortunately, the script failed during the MD5 verification of WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe. Looking at the debug output, I noticed the following error a few lines before the end:

"cd (...)/Office2007/windows/system32 : No such file or directory" 

It looks like the script stopped at the following line:

POL_Call POL_Install_riched30 

Which in turn is calling POL_Install_riched20: 

cd "$WINEPREFIX/windows/system32"
POL_Call POL_SP2_Extract riched20.dll
POL_Wine_OverrideDLL "native,builtin" "riched20"

 

But looking at my .PlayOnLinux tree, the "windows" directory is located under "drive_c", and not directly under "$WINEPREFIX" :

renaud@stealth:~/.PlayOnLinux$ ls wineprefix/Office2007/drive_c
GAC_MSIL  MSOCache  Program Files  users  windows

To verify my assumptions, I created a local script and replaced:

cd "$WINEPREFIX/windows/system32"

with

cd "$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/windows/system32"

And everything worked as expected.

Any comments?
