When installing The Elder Scrolls Oblivion, I get the following SECUROM error:

Ein benötigtes Sicherheitsmodul kann nicht aktiviert werden.

Dieses Programm kann nicht gestartet werden (3000).

This does not happen when I install it without POL. How could that script be fixed? I'd like to do my gaming in POL because it does not "interfere" as much with the rest of my system, as my ubuntu wine installation does.

The Elder Scrolls IV - Oblivion

Newer wine probably support securom but last wine platinum rated is 1.3.1.

If you want to use same wine version as you system with POL, simply use "manage wine version" in POL.

If you can play and do not encounter bugs for at least 10 hours of gameplay, report it here and I will update POL installer for this game.

i even got this "menu freezing bug".
i can get into settings and set 'em. but i can't get outta the game or start the game, otherwise the game freezes/crashes. any help? (settings aren't being saved because i can't really get outta the game "normally"
