How can I edit the shortcut for an application to use aoss because no other application can use sound if the application runs?

Well I tried in /home/user/.PlayOnLinux/shortcuts to add aoss in the line:

POL_Wine "aoss launcher.exe" $@
POL_Wine aoss "launcher.exe" $@

But if I want to start the programm it crashes.

You can set sound driver to ALSA with winecfg, so what's the point of using aoss?
Getting sound sharing to work right is complex, but I suspect you're barking at the wrong tree.
Do you know

Well, with 1.3.37 it's not possible to set the sounddriver manually (or I didn't find a quick solution) and now I'm using a shortcut on the desktop/menu using the command:

aoss /usr/share/playonlinux/playonlinux --run "application"

I'm confused, now it works without aoss and it seems to work with ts3 °_°
