Dear everyone,


I have installed PlayonLinux in my CentOS system and I want to install software such as photoshop, office with it.

However, when I find these software in PlayonLinux and click "install" button, a new window jumps out. This window contains only two lines of texts, which read:

"PlayonLinux wizard

Please read this"

please see the image at


After these two text lines there is nothing in this window.

So it seems that I cannot continue the installation of the software.

Could you tell me the reason of this and how to solve the problem?

Thank you in advance!

Please tell the exact apps version you select in POL.  And give your POL version.

The POL version I installed is 4.3.4.

The photoshop version I selected is CS6

The Office version i selected is Microsoft Office 2010 Activition.

Actually whatever app I select, POL always gives that same blank windows as discribed above.

I've tried on my POL 4.3.4, all is OK.

Perhaps the issue is related to your POL current installation frown ...  Do you have softwares installed in POL?

No software can be installed in POL in my computer now.

What is your suggestion? 

I installed POL by "yum" command of CentoOS. Should I install another version of POL by compilation from source?

In order to "Reset" POL settings, I don't know the right way to do it (perhaps described in: ),

but I can suggest to: 

#1 Close POL
#2 Delete the POL settings folder:  ~/.PlayOnLinux
and perhaps also delete "PlayOnLinux's virtual drives" (not sure if it is necessary in your case).
