    ERROR message playing game via WineSkin
    I downloaded a game a while back and it worked flawlessly, I tried playing it today (a couple of weeks later) and my game will not start, instead a pop message appears stating:

    ERROR! cannot write to Info.plist, there are permission problems, or you are on a read-only volume.

    This cannot run from within a read-only dmg file.

    please help.

    cheers.

    How, exactly are you starting this game? Sounds like it's not installed and still on a .dmg image.

    What is the name of the game? Are there any special characters in the name, such as & or #?
    If so, rename it. Check the Wineskin FAQ for more answers.
