Virtual Drives don't see all installed Wine versions

I am currently playing two different games using PlayOnLinux 4.2.2 Champions Online and Star Wars Galaxies.

When I first installed Wine, I had no idea that I was supposed to make virtual drives for both games, this led to problems playing both of them. However, I've managed to fix most of those issues. There is one problem with Champions Online with multiple disconnections whenever I change instances that I thought would be fixed if I were able to change the wine version that I'm using. But I can't change the wine version. Although I've installed the correct version, it won't show up in the dropdown that's supposed to allow you to change the wine versions.

I only have "System" and Wine version 1.8, which sort of works, but I have problems using it that led to the game crashing and also causing an issue with Javascript.

Edit: I neglected to mention, that if I try to install a game using Play on Linux, that the new virtual drive that it makes does not have this issue. It's only the drives that I make manually.

Thank you for your attention,

Can I possibly just uninstall Play on Linux at this point, and then reinstall it with no damage to the rest of my system, in an effort to get it to act properly?

I can't believe that I stumped everyone with this...

The problem I'm having in pictures!

I get a lot of and
and I thought it might help if I could only change my wine versions.
However, even after making new virtual drives I still have only and to choose from and neither one is the right one.
I already have the right one installed:
So my question is, how do I get it to show up in the drop down choices?
Do I have to uninstall Play on Linux to get this to work right?
Thank you for your attention!

Sorry I cannot see all of your screenshots.

Can you detail a little more (e.g. what version you have installed, what version you want to install and what version you want to assign to which app)

​I was hoping for something regarding my wine problem, However any response is nice.

What do you mean, "What version"? The first links I posted to images were the first direct links to my screenshots on Imgur, the links I posted this time (in the edit) were what I thought was supposed to go on forums as image links, I noticed they didn't work either, so I just pasted what Imgur says are direct links instead of just the first links presented to use. I hope this works for copying and pasting into the address bar of a browser. Highlighting the link, then right clicking and choosing "Open link in new tab" works for me too. I hope it also works for anyone else interested in helping me fix my wine issue.

​The versions of Wine and my system specs were listed in my first post regarding my problem with Wine. Top of the page, by the way wink

​​Rather than fiddle with these image links, I'd much rather someone would give me *some* idea how to proceed on fixing my Wine issue.

​Isn't there anyone out there that has any idea at all on how to fix my Wine issue? crying

Same problem as before! I have Champions Online as the 'application" I'd like to run, but the installed Wine versions that I have installed are NOT showing up to run it. Only "System" in the dropdown. I've been uninstalling and reinstalling PlayOnLinux and also its hidden folders, along with Wine, and it's hidden folder.

I'm now using Linux Mint Mate 19.1
