Hello :)
I downloaded PlayOnMac, hoping to make a .exe work.
But the first-assistent won't finish. It appears everytime, when i start the program and as soon as i want to start the .exe, mentioned above, it says "waiting for the first-assistent to be finished". But nothing happens.

What's happening exactly with the first assitant ? It won't finish ? That is to say?

Ok, i'll explain in pictures:

Everytime, when i open the program, this window appears:
The last sentence means "make sure, that you are connected to the internet". Which i always am.

As soon as i click on "next", this appears:
And because nothing happens i close the window and try to start the .exe
But if i try that, this appears:
And nothing happens...

Can you try to put your system in english, just during the first assistant ?

Ok.. If you tell me how, i can't find an option to change the system language :S
Could that solve the problem, or why do you ask me to do that?

I think that the problem comes from a special chars.

Go to Mac OS Settings -> Language and put english at the first place.

Look at your first screenshot. All the text is not in english.

Ensure that all the text is in english

It is in english except the last sentence, which i translated for you. But still, even after i changed the systems language the last sentence appears in german...

Okay.

Open PlayOnMac in a terminal, and tell me what errors you can read :
Commands :

cd /Applications/PlayOnMac.app/Contents/MacOS
./playonmac

What game ?

This one: http://www.laraslevelbase.org/download.asp?id=2125
It's a free custom made Tomb Raider game and should be running just by clicking on the .exe in the downloaded folder.. But nothing happens >.<

Btw i tried to run another game, called Metin2 (http://www.metin2.sg/PlayNow). It works fine, but is it normal, that the Mac is becomming quite hot while running it and making a noise which becomes louder (sounds like the ventilator)? Could it be bad for my Mac to run the game on it?
