I have an odd problem. Some time ago I used PlayOnLinux on Ubuntu to install Rage (through Steam), this worked and still works perfectly.

I now want to make another Virtual Drive to install SimCity4, this fails when I login to Steam crashing entirely before I even get to the game. The log output is as follows:

Since this works right now for another Drive I am confused to say the least. Any help appreciated?

I cannot install SimCity alongside Rage as Steam has 'no internet connection' but will still allow me to browse the Store. – Noki Dec 30 '13 at 19:32

Installed Wine 1.7.9 for both the PlayOnLinux Drive and Ubuntu itself.

And inside PlayOnLinux hit Configure and add the newer wine version to that Drive.

Yeah it slipped my mind, you need to wait for a certain amount of time before you can answer your own questions. Thanks for the reminder! – Noki Jan 26 '14 at 14:22
