    Playonlinux will not install a 64bit Program

    Cannot Get Playonlinux to install a 64bit Program

    Using MATE 2024.04/64bit and want to install Irfanview 64bit ver4.62 to run under Playonlinux. The following are installed as seen by Synaptic: libwine, wine, wine-stable, wine64. Also present and installed via POL are wine versions (amd64) 5.0 and 6.0 as seen in Playonlinux. Also installed wine64-preloader in Synaptic.

    - Playonlinux (POL) installed
    - open POL
    - Install a program> Install a non-listed program
    - POL Wizard (POL-W) pop-up #1>Next
    - POL-W pop-up #2 (does not fully open so can only see 4 lines of pop-up)
    - Next
    - POL-W pop-up #3: Manual Installation (again, can only see 4 lines of pop-up)>Next>Installl a program in a new virtual drive
    - Next
    - enter “Irfanview64bit”
    - Next
    - POL-W #4 (again, can only see two of more options) – selected none
    - Next
    - POL-W #5: select “64 bits window installation”
    - Next
    - Msg “Please wait while virtual drive is being created”
    - Winecfg pop-up
    - POL-W pop-up #6: “Manual Installation”
    - browse to executable, “i_view64.exe> select it>open
    - Next (i_view64.exe shows on POL-W “Manual Installation” page
    - Irfanview opens and is fully functional. BUT after closing, it has not been installed?
    - Close Irfanview
    - POL pop-up: “Please choose a file for POL to make another shortcut>Browse>

    I tried the first process to install an application suggested at “”, but I encountered many error messages.

    So what am I missing? The fact that Irfanview will run with POL suggest to me I am very close to an install, and just missed a switch somewhere.
