- Name of the Distribution (And it's version) = Ubuntu Hardy
- Name of the software and it's version = Wine 1.0
- Your desktop (KDE,Gnome,Xfce,Fluxbox...) = Gnome

Ok im trying to install warcraft 3, I downloaded your program and installed it successfully, and then I click on Install > Games > Warcraft III : The Frozen Throne >> Apply > Install

After that I get a big window with the message Error (only), and I click Next and I return to the main window.
How can I install Warcraft 3 Using PlayOnLinux ? And Assuming I already have the game installed on a USB drive or my hard drive, cant I just launch the .exe file? (It works with Cedega and Wine) if I can, how?

Finally, does PlayOnLinux have to be connected to the internet to install games? Why?

To modify the script do this:
1. Choose install Warcraft III.
2. Abort the installation wizard.
3. Look for a file named "Install" in "/home/username/.PlayOnLinux".
4. Modifty the file to you liking.

Overwrite everything in the Install file with this:
if [ "$PLAYONLINUX" = "" ]
exit 0
source "$PLAYONLINUX/lib/sources"

#Check_cdrom "install.exe"

cd $HOME/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/WarcraftIII

select_prefixe "$(pwd)"

#cd $WINEPREFIX/dosdevices
#rm ./*
#ln -s ../drive_c c:
#ln -s / z:
#ln -s $CDROM ./d:
#cd "$CDROM"
#wine ./install.exe

#cd $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/Program\ Files/Warcraft\ III/
#mv Movies MoviesOLD
#mkdir Movies

creer_lanceur "WarcraftIII" "Program Files/Warcraft III/" "Frozen Throne.exe" "WarcraftIII_FrozenThrone.xpm" "Warcraft III : The Frozen Throne" "" "-opengl"
#message "Installation terminée"

Then save everything and run it with "Runs a un-official script" under "Tools".
Then you can you change where the game is locate in "Warcraft III : The Frozen Throne" file in this directory "/home/username/.PlayOnLinux/configurations/installed/".

I hope this helps! =)
