Hello, I want to run a POL program that's already on the list, the only problem I have is that by default it runs with WinXP and I need to run it with Win7, how will I be able to change the Set_Os from winxp to win7?

Thanks for your answer, I was doing it that way but I was just wondering if I could edit it directly from the script, is that possible?

Hi,

You can click on the "Contribute" button in the game's repository page, and then unwrap "I want to submit an improvement" to see the script editor and add a Set_OS "win7" line somewhere below the POL_Wine_PrefixCreate line, maybe even near the end of installation as installing some components may change the emulated OS version, if the installer doesn't mind.

Still, I'm always a bit intrigued with such changes being required, I mean I don't doubt that the script worked as-is for the script author, so was the game upgraded? Will the old version work with this change? Such things...

Thanks for the answer, however I was unable to find that "Contribute" button but I don't need the Win7 thing now.

 

Oh, and I used to need it for a class in college were the profesor asked us to download Ableton trial and write a VST in C (to analyze how the sound, signals, etc. Relate with our code). But I've managed to solve it already, I was having problems with win XP as I'm not familiar with Windows.

Thank you both for answering! wink
