This one happen only with Tycon or with any software/game?

I think it's related to Tycon script, but I need confirmation.

I was able to install other programs just fine. Notice in the first comment I left some information from my terminal window, look at the line starting with "wrestool:" Instead of installing in "Program Files" it says it's trying to install it in "/drive_c/gram Files" which is why I believe it's getting errored. Is there any way to fix the location of the installer?

I think I found where the problem is.

Can you try with the development version (3.8.2-dev).
You can found it here:

I was able to find a workaround, installing in wine, then copying the files to the hidden .playonlinux folder in my home. I just thought I would let POL know there was a flaw in this game installer, I was able to workaround, and I don't currently have the problem. Recently my Linux partition and files were removed when trying to install windows on a seperate partiton, how great is that... lol
