This is going to be difficult because you might need to do a manual installation.

If this is the case, you will need to know what Photoshop needs to run:

  • Dot Net Framework
  • Visual C
  • Direct X

Have you ever performed a manual installation?

Here are the basic steps for manual installation

Manual Installation:

Launch PlayOnLinux

Click Install

Click “Install a non-listed program”

Click Next

Select “Install in a new virtual drive”

Name your virtual drive (no spaces)

Select all three options:

  • Use another version of Wine
  • Configure Wine
  • Install some libraries

Select Wine version

Set Windows version (Windows 7)

Graphics Tab:
- check “automatically capture mouse...”

Click Ok

Select libraries to install
Standard Libraries:

  • core fonts
  • 3dx9
  • dotnet 40
  • gdiplus
  • tahoma
  • vcrun20xx

Click Browse

Select Game Installer EXE

Follow installation instructions

Uncheck any Desktop shortcuts

Complete game installation


PlayOnLinux Shortcut

Select exe for shortcut

Name the shortcut
