Copy previous installation

Hey there!

I'm not quite sure this has been discussed before, but since I couldn't find anything about it, I'll give it a try.

I was wondering if it's possible to copy a previous installation under wine to some directory in the .playonlinux-folder?

For example:

I have Warcraft 3: Frozen Throne installed under wine. Would it be possible for me to just go inside the .wine-folder, copy the entire "Warcraft III"-folder, and paste it somehow in the .playonlinux-folder, and still get the same result as if I'd installed the game as you should?

I don't have the install-discs anymore, so that's why I need this to work :]

Sorry for badly formatted text, I'm dead tired.

Ps. Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section of the forum, please feel free to move it if you want :]

Thanks in advance,
Neonii

Hey!
It is better to copy the whole .wine folder with registry entries.
You copy it to:
/home/user/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/

Name of the folder is your own choice.

But you need to create a shortcut then later to Warcraft 3 in here:
/home/user/.PlayOnLinux/configurations/installed

Name the file of your own choice, paste this into it and edit it:
#!/bin/bash
export WINEPREFIX="/home/user/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/WarcraftIII"
export WINEDEBUG="-all"
cd "/home/user/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/WarcraftIII/drive_c/WC3/"
wine "Frozen Throne.exe" -opengl $@

Then try to run it in PlayOnLinux.

I hope this helps!

Nope !

You have a plugin called "Wine import"

Thanks alot for the replies. It actually worked with the plugin 'Tinou' mentioned - wine import - though it's kind of annoying not to be able to alt + tab out of the game. Nothing happends when I try to do it, and when I try to change workspace, the entire screen is just going nuts.

Any workaround for this that you know of? Or will I have to live with it?

Thanks again,
Neonii

What I do is in Ubuntu is this:
alt + rightmouse button

and choose move to right workspace.
But this isn't not a good way sometimes it makes the game looks ugly,

Another solutions is to "Emulate a virtual desktop" of Warcraft 3 then ALT+TAB works.
