After migrating to a amd64 based distro (Lmde), i've erased the 32 bits wine version i used, and redownloaded 64bits counterparts.
Alas those versions of wine doesnt appear in the configuration tab (i have only system a choice).

In your experts opinions, what can i do to force POL to use the new amd64 wine versions ?

You can't. 32bits created virtual drives must stay 32bits

Thank you Quentin for the quick reply.

In a desperate move, i tried this copying my Wine64 exec from .PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-amd64 to /.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-x86.
It seems to be working so far (i can select and launch differnt version of wine with previous 32Bits prefixes...).

I advise you to avoid this ;) just replace ARCHITECTURE= line in playonlinux.cfg if you want to force wine 64

Even better ! Thanks a bunch.
What would be the correct syntax (there is no example in the cfg) ?

I give you an example :

In my computer, the file "/Users/Tinou/Library/PlayOnMac/wineprefix/Huckel95/playonlinux.cfg" contains the following line :


If I wanted to force 64bits wine, I would write:

Works for me.
i'll tell you i just love this kind of stuff, modularity of POL, no dependancies, and now neat bypass !
Thank you Quentin.
