I have added to POL my default wine prefix and QIP application in it (ICQ client). But when I run QIP from POL "My applications" tab and then close POL window, I can't then open it before closing QIP because of "POL is already running" error. And there isn't playonlinux process))

Yep.. Because your apps is a sub process of POL

So... How can I open POL window witout closing all application opened with POL? Or I shoudn't close POL window at all if I want use it and don't want closing, for example, uTorrent or QIP running with POL?))) It isn't a good idea!

May be you can reduce POL to tray when pressing close button, and if close - than close with all applications?

Reduce in the tray yes, close all the applications, no

Well, only one think is necessary: if you close POL, you shoud have an ability to open it)) So, may be you can do it like uTorrent - always it reduce to tray, even if you press close button on the right top corner, and you can close it only if you choose entry "Exit" in main meny...

I have the same issue, I get a window that say "PlayOnLinux is already running"
I've loked at running processes (ps aux) and no pol or playonlinux
Running from shell I get:
PlayOnLinux v2.7.2

Checking python :                     [ Ok ]

...and then the alert window.

Maybe is there some lock or temp file to remove???

Hi lucypher,

You can try to kill some process related to python or wine.
