Hi

I only have a simple question:

How I can open a EXE as Administrator like in Windows with PlayOnLinux? :incertain:

I've also tried it with WINE directly

I'm using PlayOnLinux in Ubuntu 11.10 and Wine 1.4 without errors.

Thanks for the help

PD: Sorry for my English, I'm Spanish :D

Hi,

Wine doesn't implement separate user privileges, as the FAQ says (http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#head-96bebfa287b4288974de0df23351f278b0d41014),
"As far as Windows programs are concerned, you are running with administrator privileges. If an application complains about a lack of administrator privileges, file a bug; running Wine as root probably won't help."

I know it, but i thought that in POL was a way to do it.

OH NO! I don't want to use Windows :cry:

..........FOR NOW :sunglasses:

Thanks for responding, goodbye.

If it doesn't make any sense in Wine, it doesn't make any sense in POL.
But, you said nothing about what you tried to achieve...

In certain games(like league), there is a separate .admin launcher.  I couldn't run it, but then I right clicked it in playonlinux, pressed open application directory, and then double clicked lol.client.admin or whatever and it worked!  hope this helps :)
