Sorry guys I wasn't really sure where to post this:

After installing Pol 3.8.12 (as root).. It freezes up when I try to run it from my quick launch menu. When I hit the Close All button a couple of blank windows pop up that I can't close unless I restart my session. POL works just fine if I run in terminal (as root). HaHa.. do you guys ever get tired of us NOOBS?? :incertain:

It continues to run that error message until I reboot..

It crash because you launched PoL as root, try this :
sudo chown -R dana-chris:dana-chris /home/dana-chris/.PlayOnLinux/
This command will reset the ownership of the .PlayOnLinux directory to your current user account.

NEVER launch PoL as root, it's a complete nonsence.
