    What version of PlayOnLinux are you using?
    The current is 4.3.4

    If World of Warcraft is a 32-bit game, then you don't have to use a 64-bit virtual drive (wineprefix) but I use it for every game these days.

    Also make sure you have installed Stable Wine from your package manager. PlayOnLinux will use that for the "default" wineprefix and basic setup of installing virtual drives.

    Can you go to Tools > Wine Manager
    Then download Wine 5.0 and Wine 5.0 64-bit?

    I registered to post my appreciation. I'm very grateful to booman for writing this guide. Beats all the other guides that I read and those were pretty good too.

    Thank you! It was the only way to implement DXVK in Mint until PlayOnLinux finally added it in the Components area. Manual intervention sucks sometimes, but can be rewarding!

    Thanks for my further education. I see DXVK_155 through 173 listed under Configure -> Select Drive -> Install components tab. I will still keep a record of the manual process because it is a good learning tool. But I'm guessing in the future I can just click one of these, add them and that should have the same effect?

    Yes, installing DXVK in PlayOnLinux is much quicker and I've been using 1.7.2
