Not sure about Playonlinux, it does something useful additionally? Its based on Wine. Encountered many typos. Maybe it has installed some required dll or component for you to run this game? Want to run almost every game actually, but app itself crashes.
I have installed: corefonts, binkw32.dll, d3dx10_43, d3dx11_43, d3dx9_24 to 42 (perhaps too many), directx9 (usually overkill), dontnet40, ffdshow, ie8, l3codecx, mfc42, msls31, msvcirt, pngfilt, vcrun2005, vcrun2008, vcrun2010, vcrun 2012, vcrun2013, vcrun2015, vcrun6sp6, vcrun6, uh:|, wininet, xact, xinput, xmllite, xvid. Version is set to Win 7 32-bit. And permissions should be fine already because it worked before.
There are also options in winetricks that I may have missed, and playonlinux doesn’t let me use prefix that already exists, even with import plugin.
Well, i dont know why it doesn’t work and doubt anyone will be eager solving this strange problem!
glistwan’s stable wine works though.
When running through terminal, it keeps showing messages like these:
fixme:file:MoveFileWithProgressW MOVEFILE_WRITE_THROUGH unimplemented

Not sure about the errors. Playonlinux doesn’t do anything that wine can’t do but it’s just easier(for example you can use different wine versions for different programs). It’s actually wine 2.17 staging that works for me: http://paste.opensuse.org/79049228
