    Default installing stuff from winetricks to different prefixes

    Im using playonlinux to run my games through wine. I need to install things from winetricks to different prefixes, van anyone tell me how to do this manually?
    People keep popinting me to POL helper but I cant get this to work so im going around in circles but I would be quite happy doing this via the manual method.

    thanks but that only installs to the main wine directory, or so i believe. I need to install to specific prefixes as different games need different items from winetricks

    Wine creates a simulated windows drive and environment, if you go to /.wine/drive_c
    You can see what I mean. Winetricks installs the various options in there just as if it was windows.
    Unless you are more specific about what it is you need to achieve I'm not sure I can offer much more advice. Maybe someone more into wine and games will understand.

    WINEPREFIX is a keyword not PREFIX

    You can try Q4Wine -- nice GUI for WINE.
