Im running ubuntu 9.10 and i have the latest wine and playonlinux
wine version: wine-1.1.36
playonlinux version: 3.7.2

When going to install fallout 3 i select that from the list which brings up the fallout 3 installer menu that shows the install location and some info on the game. When i click the forward button
it brings me to a menu to select from "install game" or "adapt steam version". I select install game and hit forward. It then brings up a error message window saying "Error Unable to find the version : 1.1.36" and all it has is a next button that when i press brings me back to the main fallout 3 install window. Once back at this main fallout 3 window i cannot chose "install game" anymore...its grayed out.

Ive had fallout 3 installed before in playonlinux so i know it used to work...but now that it does not i have no idea what to try. Id really like to use playonlinux for my games as its a nice application and consolidates all my games into one nice place(kinda like steam does).

Game installs fine now but the script that POL uses to start the game seems to be wrong..i had to edit the file
"~/.PlayOnLinux/configurations/installed/Fallout\\ 3" and change the line "cd "/home/USER/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/Fallout3/drive_c/Program Files/Bethesda Softworks/Fallout 3"" so that the cd command was all on 1 line....for some reason the default cd command was broken into 2 lines...which caused the game not to start....i changed both the fallout 3 scripts in that folder and now everything seems to be working how it should

That's Wine 1.1.36 issue.
