What does not
StarStable Launcher does not work out of the box.
In order to install you must use winetricks to install Microsoft Core Fonts. You cannot use PlayOnLinux to install them.
What was not tested
Nothing was not tested.
The issue is with the new StarStable LAUNCHER. The application works as well as it always has, but the new launcher would not come up in a usable manner.
A user determined that the microsoft core fonts were not being installed properly through PlayOnLinux and that if, instead, you use winetricks and install the MS Core Fonts you are able to run and use the launcher.

I use Pop!_OS, a derivative of Ubuntu.
I install Wine and Wine64. I think installed PlayOnLinux (just because it makes life easier) and Winetricks.
1. Created SSO 64 bit WINE container through PlayOnLinux.
2. env WINEARCH="win64" WINEPREFIX="/home/mitch/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/SSO" bash winetricks
3. Then selected default prefix
4. Selected Install Font.
5. Selected corefonts... let it do its thing.
