I just tried installing Morrowind from the list. When the actual installation starts, an error message pops up

Title: "Component transfer error"

Component: Main App
File Group: App Executables
File: <Empty>
Error: -2147024877

I tried different versions of wine, including "System default".

The funny thing is: If it just open up a terminal, "cd" to /media/cdrom and enter "wine Setup.exe" it installs without any problems....
I'd rather have it installed with POL though

Can someone help, please?

Forgot one thing: The same error pops up if I use "manual installation" instead of the script, too.

My System:
Debian Testing
wine: 1.1.1
WM: Sawfish

Can you retry with the script please ?

Just did, same error.

I'm quite new to POL, so when I said that I'm using the script I mean that I'm using the internal list of games (which basically execuets the script, I assume).

If you need some other detailed info, please also tell me *how* to get it...

Okay, it works now! Thanks!

Even though I'm sure I uninstalled and even deleted the prefix before...
