I have installed war z but everytime i try to make a shortcut I get this:

Error in POL_Shortcut
Binary not found: WarZlauncher.exe
Have you installed the program to the default location?

It doesn't install there it's hardcoded to install into your Documents folder on Windows.

Hm.. I know that the torrent version installs to the Documents folder. lol. Not too sure about the purchased version (I just checked).

Can you post up your debug output (the installation log. check sticky at top of forum for directions) so that we can see what happened during the install?

I don't use a torrented version, I use the official download since I am a paying customer.

Here's my output

Cool ;)

Like petch mentioned, did you install it on to drive C:? And is installed in the default location?

Is there anyway that you can pastebin the BIG one from your debug log? This one only has the same thing repeating over and over. Im wondering if something else led to that?

I do notice that all of them are d3d related, but they are "fixme", which usually is not an issue. Maybe try to install dx3d into that virtual drive and see if that helps?

It's installed to the hardcoded location on the installer which is My Documents (so the My Documents of the default drive).

Which dx3d should I try and why would installing that fix a POL shortcut creation issue (totally different thing), the launcher runs if i run it manually just POL seems to think the .exe file I select to create a shortcut doesn't exist.

Where do I find the "big one" from my debug log? What I pasted is my debug log.

The game itself is installed, just It cannot seem to find a shortcut even when I select the shortcut manually it says it can't find it....even though I just told it what to use.

Here I ran it in terminal when trying to manually make the shortcut: http://pastebin.com/t8sP4xUw

So it can't find the file...even though it was select manually and clearly has the right path for it:

That makes sense, Wine normally creates "My Documents" as a symlink to the closest equivalent Linux directory, so the game is not installed "inside" the virtual drive.
Let's congratulate this game's developers for this amazing choice.

Two ways to fix this:
- remove /home/liam/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/warz/drive_c/users/liam/My Documents symlink and replace it with a directory, then move the game directory (that should be in either /home/liam/The War Z or /home/liam/My Documents/The War Z) inside it. After that you should be able to create the shortcut.
- I just created a PlayOnLinux function, "PrivateUserDirs", to replace all the symlinks of a virtual drive with directories. If you select "Install some libraries" then select this function during installation, you should be able to create the shortcut too. But in this second solution, you'll have to reinstall the game.

Bugger you are right it installed it into my /home grrr.

The solution of removing the link and making a directory worked, thanks :D
